So the mergeinfo properties are still there.

That shouldn't be a problem.

Just update your working copy (use the "update" command in TSVN).

That's what an update does - it updates the working copy to the HEAD

When merging, it is recommended that you do all merges always from the
root of your working copy, not just from a subfolder or even a single
file. While the latter is possible and works fine, it will make
subsequent merges slower.

Maybe you should ask on the code hosting group:

Google code has its own implementation of the svn repository, using
their bigtable system. So it might be an issue with that. Even if it's
not, the guys who run the Google code hosting (and implemented it) are
svn developers (some former, some are still active) so they know a *lot*
about the internals of Subversion.
