The merge-commits don't show using HEAD~n.

Here's an example.  With the current trunk, the 10th and 11th entries
shown by "git log" are for merge-commits made by Stefan.  But if I

  git show HEAD~10

I see the 12th commit, the one by Oscar.  And HEAD~9 is the one before
the two Stefan's commits.

By contrast, with bzr I do see merge-commits as if they were mainline

  bzr log -c-12
  118349: Glenn Morris 2014-11-10 [merge] Merge from emacs-24; up to 117702

Am I doing something wrong?
