When comparing mergeinfo for '/subversion/trunk' between
^/subversion/branches/1.6.x_at_880529 and
^/subversion/branches/1.6.x-r40452_at_880530 it's interesting to note
that there are exactly the same number of revisions (273) even though
they *all* differ. The ranges on the 1.6.x-r40452 branch were from
3655 to 3910 revisions higher than those on 1.6.x. It's probably not
a coincidence that 3644 is the number of revisions in the old CVS
repository that hosted Subversion development prior to the project
becoming self-hosting. Mike converted this history with cvs2svn and
combined it with our s.t.o. history and the whole thing got loaded to
s.a.o -- see http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/README. This
in turn is likely related to the busted mergeinfo offsets we found
during 1.6.7 testing,
http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2009-12/0386.shtml (which is still an
open item for me).

I still can't replicate anything like this, but I'm syncing a mirror
of s.a.o. right now and will use it to more exactly replicate what
Stefan did...
