Thanks. I've run that, and all the calls are lstat(). There are 16 for each
file (or at least, those not affected by the merge). I've copied on of the
calls below (all 16 of these are identical).

lstat("....../dev/workingcopy/A/beta.txt", {st_dev=makedev(8, 1),
st_ino=23855167, st_mode=S_IFREG|0644, st_nlink=1, st_uid=1000, st_gid=1000,
st_blksize=4096, st_blocks=8, st_size=5, st_atime=2010/12/06-07:10:42,
st_mtime=2010/12/06-07:10:42, st_ctime=2010/12/06-07:10:42}) = 0

It does appear that it's a known issue though. I'll keep investigating to
try and understand why it's getting called at all. Thanks for your help.
