In Calibre 2.7 and earlier the 2 books would merge into another
No merging takes place...

Remapping the keyboard shortcut under Preferences - Change Calibre Behaviour - Keyboard - Edit Metadata... unexpected behaviour persists.

Click Edit Metadata icon - Merge Book Records - Merge into first selected book, delete others - then 2 books merge as expected.
