This is not a bug. 'svn mergeinfo' will only show information about known
merge sources (that is, sources recorded in svn:mergeinfo) unless you
specify --from-source. This is by intentional. Of course, that your merge
did nothing is interesting.
On IRC you indicated that the repository has svn:mergeinfo properties in it,
possible from a bygone era when we created such at 'svn copy' time. I guess
we can look into the cause of your particular problem (since neither Paul
nor I could manufacture a similar scenario that didn't work as expected),
but I betcha its that rogue mergeinfo that's causing the problems and is the
difference between what you are messing with and what Paul and I are messing
