How to workaround/reproduce the "Malformed URL for repository" issue

I am using svn 1.5.0 on Windows.

I think I found a way to reproduce/workaround the issue we have been having
with the "Malformed URL for repository" error while merging.

Create a repository that has done a successful merge and commit the change
(mergeinfo property exists on the folder).

Somewhere inside that folder perform a svn move.
svn move foo.aspx bar

When committing "foo.aspx", there will be a mergeinfo property on the file.
Am I correct that mergeinfo should only be on a folder?

Once you have committed a file with a mergeinfo property, you will get the
"Malformed URL for repository" when trying to perform the next merge.

If I remove the mergeinfo property from the files, I can successfully
perform a merge again.

This happens with tortoiseSVN 1.5.2 as well as the command line svn 1.5.0.
