I am not doubting how easy it is to create the scenario. I still have
two thoughts:

1) Maybe we should be trying to attack the problem at the point where
we create it. In other words, be smarter about when we create the
mergeinfo that causes the problem.

2) Merges with renames basically do not work anyway. So maybe people
just avoid renames? I doubt that is the case. But this issue is just
a minor part of the larger problem.
