Well, from my amateur understanding if the merge into /zcode/trunk/lcast was done before the
merge into /zcode/trunk/lcast when the top level merge was done the mergeinfo on /zcode/trunk/lcast
should have been elided. My only guess is that the person that did the top level merge reverted
the property change to the /zcode/trunk/lcast folder since they figured there was no change
in that folder. 

Once again, from my understanding you can remove that merge info from /zcode/trunk/lcast because
it is included in the /zcode/trunk folder. 

YMMV... check your logs and I expect you will see that the merge for 1124-1406 into /trunk
did not include a change to /trunk/lcast to elide the property... which it should of. Also,
you might want to setup a test scenerio of this by dumping your repo or just create a similar
situation in a test repo.

Also, you might want to train your people to not merge from project sub-folders to prevent
child-node/file mergeinfo.
