[Phpmyadmin-devel] need help understanding what happened with a merge

Hi all,

I was looking to solve a bug [0], and found some differences between
master and QA_3_3 (where QA_3_3 seemed correct). I wondered why it was
changed and found that the change was introduced by a merge I did [1]
: commit 20a402ba29776f2ed1ba3122e48df98bfc11cafe

But what's strange about this commit is that it seems to merge two
commits. One of mine, where I solved a bug (diff1 [2]) and another one
(diff2 [3]), where the reported bug [0] is introduced.
When I try to figure out where this commit comes from, I only find it
was committed by me. But I'm quite sure I didn't. Moreover because
that commit changes a lot of files, and I changed only ChangeLog and
So I'm a bit confused now : Where did this commit come from? Who did
it? Why did it end up in my merge (according to git), but it doesn't
show up in the original report I got by mail when committing this
merge? And more important : should it be reversed?

I would be grateful if anyone could explain what happened back then.
