That was my first thought. However, there are a few issues.

First, they may not get fixed "on the next update", since some of
these changes may be the deletion of svn:mergeinfo on random paths
that didn't need to have them; no dir-delta is going to decide to send
"delete this svn:mergeinfo that never existed in my version of the
world".

Second, I believe there is special-case code in libsvn_wc that in fact
*doesn't* treat svn:mergeinfo as an atomic value, but which does some
sort of merge.
