Same here. 

As I see things, something like this :

addfile A
move A B

implies that A was first added then moved to B, resulting in a repository containing only B.

But this : 

move A B
addfile A

should, at least for me, always mean that A was moved to B, 
then another file named A was added, resulting in a repository containing A and B.

But as I said in the previous mail, it happens that before reordering it was (add, move). 

Even if I am still not sure under what circumstances this happened, 
this is the case on the repository I did my tests, so this is a situation where reordering made things ambiguous.

So what is the reason behind the moves reordering ?
