possible mergeinfo bug (repro script attached)

I've found what I think is a bug in mergeinfo handling when merging to a
target with a subfolder that has explicit mergeinfo. Said explicit
mergeinfo doesn't get updated, which I think it should since the
explicit mergeinfo overrides the inheriting of the root's mergeinfo.
Thus, when you go to reintegrate, it claims that subfolder hasn't been
merged from trunk in the first place.


In the attached repro script, if you see something that says "I expect
that...", it means that's what I think should happen, but it isn't
happening. The script is a windows batch file. It expects its working
directory to be some place it can check things out to, and it expects
its only argument to be a repo URL to an empty repo (it depends on their
being 0 revisions in the repo because at one point I hardcode a revision


My test client and server version: 1.6.6 (r40053)

I first discovered this in the wild with a 1.6.4 client and a 1.5.x
server (don't know exactly the server's version).


I hope I'm not doing something stupid and this really is a bug. I don't
want to waste anyone's time. Thank you very much,

Ryan (aka Yanroy on IRC)
