I assume you know it is the Subversion code doing this, so nothing we can do
about it regardless.

There were changes in --record-only merges made in 1.7:

http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.7.html#merge-tracking-enhancements

I believe that --record-only used to only record the revision you were
recording. Now it also looks if that revision did any merges and also
applies the mergeinfo from that revision. So that must be the traffic you
are seeing. See:
