I would say we should not spend too much time discussing a single problem of
out of 50 merges you run into. If this is a bug, it might be fixed already.
If it's not fixed, then any regression testing will catch the problem. And
it might not be a bug at all. I once had svn perform completely bogus merge
(on "svn up", not "svn merge"). And in the end in turned out I just had run
very outdated "svn" on a working copy created by the current one. Just user
