Foo Version 5 was being developed, then stopped while new features and bug fixes for Foo Version 6 were added. I now want to create a branch for Foo Version 5 off a revision before Foo Version 6 feature commits were made, so I can merge just the bug fixes. When I create the FooV5 branch and bring up the revision log for Foo from the merge dialog, it shows no revisions unless I uncheck stop on copy/rename. When I uncheck, all revisions are grayed out as if they were merged, even though they have not been. I can select a revision and merge it, and all works as it should, but all revisions before the FooV5 branch commit are considered merged. Revisions after the branch are not grayed out.
