Hi Sean and Matt,

sorry about the corruption.

About the name, you are right, not the correct one, I'll fix this in my hgrc.

Should I re-send the patch with the patchbomb extension as a reply to this 
thread of mail (using the --in-reply-to) ? Or simply as a brand new mail, so 
opening a new thread ?

About the huge set of test changes, agree it's a little bit scary (was my first 
impression when they failed). Tests were not wrong, but due to my fix, result 
differs in the different test case of merge that match the issue 4748.

I don't have simply replaced the tests, I have check them first. But definitely 
a second pair of eyes is necessary (maybe I miss something because I don't 
master all the mercurial internals).
