Hi Jens,

It's not a bug*. 1.5.x/subversion/bindings/swig had explicit
mergeinfo prior to your merge to 1.5.x. Subtrees of a merge target
which have explicit mergeinfo always get their mergeinfo updated, even
if the merge doesn't affect them directly.

*Now saying it isn't a bug doesn't mean there isn't debate about it --
see http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?listName=dev&msgNo=136570
for some background. That thread is specifically about no-op merges
changing mergeinfo on the merge target, but the basic argument holds
too for subtrees.
