'svn up' may cause inconsistent mergeinfo

There is yet another problem with sub-tree mergeinfo:

(1) User A performs a sub-tree merge causing the mi property
  to be added to the sub-node. No commit, yet.
(2) User B commits a merge at the branch root, modifying its m/i.
(3) User A updates and commits their merge.

Now, the sub-tree mergeinfo does not reflect the changes
made to the root node m/i. If the latter are operative on that
sub-tree, the data is inconsistent and can create conflicts.

The attached script demonstrates the problem.
