RE: Merge error (Failed to read tmp.tmp file)

I'm using svn-0.32.1 which is based on revision 7480 which doesn't have the
memory overwrite change in 7523.

I tried doing it over http and got the exact same result.

trunk>svn merge -r 43:HEAD http://server/svn/repos/4.02/
svn: End of file found
svn: Failed to read file 'Source/rmBookingFunctions.asp.tmp.tmp'.

The two consecutive merges didn't work either.
I actually worked around the issue by removing the file in my working copy,
then doing the merge then moving the file back. So its not a high priority
issue or anything ... I'd just like to why it did that. I'm wondering if
it's the actual file contents that crashed the diff algorithm or something
weird like that?
