twagraph: merge_edge() can determinize automata

Reported by František Blahoudek.

* spot/twa/ Reset prop_universal() if edges are merged in
a non-deterministic automaton.
* tests/core/det.test: Add test case.
* NEWS: Mention the issue.

- ltl2tgba -B could return automata with "t" acceptance, instead
of the expected Inf(0).
- twa_graph::merge_edges() (a.k.a. autfilt --merge-transitions) was
unaware that merging edges can sometimes transform a
non-deterministic automaton into a deterministic one, causing the
following unexpected diagnostic:
"print_hoa(): automaton is universal despite prop_universal()==false"
The kind of non-deterministic automata where this occurs is not
naturally produced by any Spot algorithm, but can be found for
instance in automata produced by Goal 2015-10-18.
