           Summary: convert with --filemap fails with any (even dummy)
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: unspecified

                OS: All

I am trying to clean up a repository using hg convert --filemap. Convert works
fine with any option in filemap except rename. If I add any rename option to
filemap then it fails at the first merge with 

abort: unable to convert merge commit since target parents do not merge cleanly

I tried putting in filemap only a dummy:

rename foo bar 

(none of the foo or bar paths actually exist in the repo) and I get the same
result. I tried putting in a real rename (existing 1st path), same happens. As
fast as any rename gets in there, it breaks. It is a bug? What am I doing
