I assume that all takes place in one working copy.

Is this the same working copy? Do you have one working copy
containing both the trunk and the branch? Is it possible for you to
rerun the merge with the --dry-run option?

Does the file folder.gif have an svn:mime-type property?

I've tried a couple of things but I cannot reproduce this. The
problem is that while you have provided lots of information it is not
enough to reproduce the problem.

Action 5 was a commit, did you mean 6? I'm not sure why you would
want to repeat the merge since you said above that the previous merge
had been committed and that the only problem was some sort of
post-commit bug. Doesn't your newly checked-out working copy include
the committed merge?

I'd not recommend editing the entries file, while you may well get
something that appears to work it is possible to create problems that
are not immediately visible (missing 'deleted' entries for example).
