Strange mergeinfo-behaviour on double move

I was toying around with subversions new "multiple working copy
copy/move operations" when I noticed the following strange behaviour:

If I simultaneously rename both a directory and a file in that
directory, then commit, then update, I will suddenly have local
modifications in my WC (added svn:mergeinfo).

Here's a reproduction:

# Preparations; create a directory with one file

svn mkdir dir
touch dir/file
svn add dir/file
svn commit -m "preparations"
svn up
svn st

# Rename both the directory and the file

svn mv dir dir2
svn mv dir2/file dir2/file2
svn commit -m "double move"
svn st

# Everything seems fine so far, in particular no local changes. But at
# the next update, something surprising happens:

svn up
# At revision 55.

svn st
# M dir2/file2

# What? We suddenly have local changes?

svn diff
# Property changes on: dir2/file2
# ___________________________________________________________________
# Name: svn:mergeinfo
