I suspect you're right, I was looking at the results from the merge and they are superficially similar to what you see when there's a lot of oversieving. But if you have almost enough relations I can see a threshold phenomenon where deleting a few relations during the merge causes a cascade of deletions that destroys most of the matrix.
