Maybe you haven't, but maybe someone else on your team has?

how do you do the diff on those files? TSVN should show you a diff of
the properties if those have changed.
You can use the check-for-modifications dialog to check what exactly has
changed: right-click on the column header, then select "Text status" and
"Property status" to show those columns. If only the properties have
changed, you would see a status of "normal" in the "text status" column
but a "modified" on the "property status" column.

I'm not sure if a dump/load will fix missing mergeinfos, but a dump/load
will improve the repository and make it access faster with 1.6 - an 1.6
server can still access 1.5 repositories, but it can do so faster with
the new format.
But if you're using Google code, you can't do a dump/load cycle since
you don't have direct access to the repo.

and unfortunately, there's no way to ensure that mergeinfo props are not

There's also a thread about the same issue on the svn mailing list:
