If you use ra_dav then due to a peculiarity of the implementation you
will see the file:

$ svn log -vqr6 file://`pwd`/repo/main
r6 | (no author) | 2005-12-21 13:39:07 +0000 (Wed, 21 Dec 2005)
Changed paths:
   A /main/file1.cpp (from /branch/b/file1.cpp:5)
   A /main/folder (from /branch/b/folder:3)
   R /main/folder/file1.cpp (from /branch/b/folder/file1.cpp:3)

I can't reproduce that (using trunk anyway):


rm -rf repo wc
svnadmin create repo
echo [general] >> repo/conf/svnserve.conf
echo anon-access = write >> repo/conf/svnserve.conf

rm -rf template
mkdir template
mkdir template/main
mkdir template/branch
$SVN import template $REPO -m r1
$SVN co $REPO wc
$SVN cp $REPO/main $REPO/branch/b -m r2
$SVN sw $REPO/branch/b wc
$SVN mkdir wc/folder
echo first > wc/folder/file1.cpp
$SVN add wc/folder/file1.cpp
$SVN ci wc -m r3
echo second > wc/file2.cpp
$SVN add wc/file2.cpp
$SVN ci wc -m r4
$SVN mv wc/folder/file1.cpp wc/file1.cpp
$SVN ci wc -m r5
$SVN sw $REPO/main wc
echo first merge
$SVN merge -c3 $REPO/branch/b wc
echo second merge
$SVN merge -c5 $REPO/branch/b wc
$SVN ci wc -m r6

After running that script I get

$ svn st -v wc
                5 1 pm wc
                6 6 pm wc/file1.cpp
                6 6 pm wc/folder
                6 6 pm wc/folder/file1.cpp

Which file is missing?
