It seems reintegrate indeed doesn't cope well with non-inheritable
mergeinfo, as you describe (non-inheritable mergeinfo by itself is not
really a problem, as long as you don't reintegrate (like with a
release branch or something like that)).

I can't judge whether this problem is a bug, or expected/intended
behavior. Maybe someone else can comment?

Just one more thought: if you build a sparse working copy of trunk
that is sparse in the same way as the branch working copy (in which
you merged), would you be able to reintegrate into that?
