Broken? No. But not implemented :)
Resolving property conflicts is not possible with TortoiseMerge, because
properties are still considered 'binary' by the svn library and
therefore it doesn't create all the files to have a three-way merge
shown for the conflict. You have to resolve property conflicts manually
by checking the properties and the *reject file.

As for the interactive resolve conflict dialog during a merge, it *can*
help resolve property conflicts, but only if Subversion provides the
files for this (which is doesn't do in all situations).
