Hi Brian,

What is the history of
http://svn-backup/sc/SVP/branches/user_branches/camille? Was it
copied directly from trunk or from some other branch?

What about http://svn-backup/sc/SVP/branches/user_branches/jeff4?
From the mergeinfo dump of the repository you provided I see that
there is no mergeinfo on or under trunk, and only empty mergeinfo
within the trees rooted at camille and jeff4. But there are other
branches, e.g.

Applications/vmc/WebContent/pages/profilesVocab/updateVocab.xhtml -

that do have explicit mergeinfo and are under the 'problem' directory
of '/platform/packaging/distribution/Vivo'...not a coincidence I
suspect, but I still haven't put together a reproduction.

The issue #3067 related problems should go away with 1.5.5 yes, there
are no know issues with that anymore. If you still see this with
1.5.5 let me know, but start another thread.
