           Summary: hg annotate broken by changeset that did not touch the
                    file
          Severity: bug
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: jwatt at jwatt.org
          Hardware: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: unspecified
         Component: Mercurial
           Product: Mercurial

In Mozilla's mozilla-central repo, a few days ago the blame for at least one of
the files was messed up by a changeset that did not touch that file.
Specifically:

http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/annotate/e8f8a3f6f1f6/content/svg/content/src/nsSVGFilters.cpp

Blame is showing rev 121949 as having been the last changeset to touch most
(but NOT all) of the lines in that file. That changeset simply did not touch
that file though. Neither has that file been renamed (that's the same name and
location it's always had).

So something seems worryingly broken here.
