Ah, I have diff.renames=copies in my .gitconfig (I don't remember why I
added it; I'll change it to the default in case I forget the "--summary"
option next time).

Thanks for the hint. I actually did a "git show --stat" on my local
merge commit. This doesn't seem to honour the "--summary" option (at
least the git version I have, 2.20.1). The "git diff --stat --summary"
works as expected.
