Thanks! I'll give that a try.

But I was under the impression that if I did a non-reintegrate merge back into the trunk, it would cause self-referential mergeinfo to be written there. That is, the trunk would have mergeinfo for the trunk. And then that ends up screwing up things later on.

Or am I wrong about that? Maybe the self-referential mergeinfo I saw was being introduced some other way.
