The file wasn't changed during the merge so it doesn't get committed, so it doesn't show up
in r1400377.  

The file is listed the 'merged via' because 'svn log' includes all files/changes for a revision.
 'svn log -g' doesn't automagically trim any "unmerged" changes from the "merged via" revision.

Merges tend to change the svn:mergeinfo property on directories.   Try doing a 'svn diff -r
1400377 /sis/branches/JDK6'.  Use the '--properties-only' switch to make it clearer.
