The issue as I see it, is not to loose changes from trunk, but from RC_1_34.

Triggered by Renes objection I tried to find the correct base point for
three way compare, since RC_1_34_0_freeze indeed is not.

Thomas Witt announced existence of RC_1_34_0 branch on
2006-03-21, which funnily is the date of begin of spring. ( Maybe
because trees tend to get new branches? ;-) )

The last commit mail before is on 2006-03-20, and the first after is on
2006-03-22. The first commit to RC_1_34_0 branch I can see also is on

So I think a safe base for three-way compare would be to use CVS
checkout by date: 2006-03-21.

I did this, and unfortunately things show up to be much more complicated.

So I want to raise the question why it wouldn't be a better base to use
merged_to_RC_1_34_0 instead. At least as I understand this was the
reason why this tag was created at all, not?

If I do this, 3-way merge reduces to 7 manual merges necessary, which
look easy to resolve.
