    Description

      A merge failed with
      svn: E155023: Can't set properties on '/.../folder': invalid status for updating properties.

      Reproduced in a test (attached) that merges the removal of a folder that had non-inheritable mergeinfo.

      The merge and its output look like:

      svn merge -c5 ^/branch_A .../A
      --- Merging r5 into '.../A':
      D    .../A/D
      svn: E155023: Can't set properties on '/.../A/D/gamma': invalid status for updating properties

      When a merge deletes a folder then surely it is a bug if it tries to update properties inside that folder.
