I'm tryign to create a synonym & merge & with set as the master tag.

Trying to do this results in

This is the link which causes the problem.

The general flow I follow when merging tags is

When following the same for the above tag, I ran into the above error. I went over to the tag synonym page, swapped the mapping & proceeded with the merge, at which point it went fine.
