See issue #1249 -- I think it covers your bug.


Until this bug is fixed, though, you can consider passing the
--ignore-ancestry flag to the merge operation, and see if that helps.
You'll lose the copy ancestory information when you commit, but if
you're like me, you couldn't care less about that. :-)
