A theory on what might have happened:

1) These files all had explicit svn:mergeinfo in trunk and 1.5.x:


2) Mike upgrades the server to 1.5.0 alpha 2

3) Hyrum checks out a new 1.5.x WC, which includes explicit mergeinfo
on the six files.

4) Mike filters out all existing mergeinfo from the repository and
converts svnmerge-integrated props to svn:mergeinfo. The six files in
1) no longer have mergeinfo.

6) In r29759 Hyrum merges some changes from trunk to his 1.5.x WC,
which still has explicit mergeinfo on the 'six'. This mergeinfo
doesn't exist in the repository so when he commits the backport we see
mergeinfo added to the six files:

7) Now Karl updates his 1.5.x WC or checks out a new one, either way
he gets the subtree mergeinfo from 6, so diff/stat aren't going to
show anything unusual.
