That's because it's a new file - there's no opportunity to store a
mergepoint there because the client doesn't send entries data back to
the server for new files (deliberately, because they have no version
number so nothing to compare with).

Everything else follows on logically from that...  there may be little
that can be done in that particular case, although I'll keep looking
at it.
