This happens because people do merges at improper locations in the tree, 
then when people come along and do it right (as Rick seems to have done 
here) svn helpfully updates the mergeinfo on files/directories that have 
it below where it is supposed to be.

Some of us periodically go through and fix this, but it would be very 
helpful if people would stop breaking it. :)
