After upgrading our svn server from 1.4 to 1.5 and doing a merge, I also
noticed that the svn:mergeinfo property was set or changed on files that
were unrelated to the merge. The files in question all had one thing in
common: they were moved or copied at some point in their history.

I believe this is an effect of the 1.4 -> 1.5 transition. It seems to occur
only the first time when you merge changes into a specific location.

I don't claim to fully understand why this happens, but I suppose a thorough
reading of
http://www.collab.net/community/subversion/articles/merge-info.html will
yield the answer.
