Re: Branching 1.6 this week? (no, next week)

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2008-10/1170.shtml has the description,
suggested patch, and attached script to reproduce the problem by
creating a repository and doing some simple merges (subject: svn
mergeinfo bug with script to reproduce it (finally)! (was Re: empty
mergeinfo produced by svn_mergeinfo_inheritable))

As far as release definitions go, I'd actually want to see it go in
1.5.5 (since it breaks merges and was introduced in 1.5.0), but I
haven't gotten any responses (beyond another end user reporting that
they see the problem too...)
