mergeinfo db not updated for svn:mergeinfo props copied under a copied directory

[Nothing in this post is about pre-1.5 compatibility!]

Summary: Given /foo/{trunk,tags,branches} with lots of mergeinfo on
the trunk and branches, if you do "cp url://to/foo url://to/bar", you
will now have /bar/{trunk,tags,branches} with svn:mergeinfo properties
but the sqlite db will not know about it.

This leads to cases where "svn mergeinfo ." and "svn mergeinfo
$URL_FOR_CURRENT_DIRECTORY" return different values even if the
directory is up to date with no local mods. Presumably this is bad.

Reproduction recipe attached.
