Ok, I reproduced it after sussman helped me jump through the correct
hoops ;)

Now, here we go:

$ ~/src/svn/subversion/tests/libsvn_delta/diff3-test build_neon.bat.working \
                                                     build_neon.bat.merge-left.r5007 \
                                                     build_neon.bat.merge-right.r5008 | \
  grep '<<<'
[no output]

WTF? No conflicts. Upon investigation of subversion/libsvn_wc/merge.c I
saw that we are trying to merge 3 conflicting files and then we leave 3 non conflicting
files in the wc. The reason the 3 files we try to merge conflict is because we
aren't doing eol translation prior to running merge (is my guess). We are doing
that _after_ we see the conflict. My take is that we need to do it before (but not
the keyword expansion).

Thoughts? Better insights?


PS. Sorry for the short summary, gotta run.
