Hi, Mark. I believe this is more or less the same as a mail you
posted on users@ (which is fine). Here's the response I posted there,
which I think still applies:

               --------------------------------------

I unfortunately don't have time to debug this myself right now, but
you could help us a lot with issue #2761 by putting together a true
reproduction recipe. Just dump your repository ('svnadmin dump'), and
zip up your working copy as it is before the merge, and attach them to
the issue, along with a note saying what steps to take to reproduce --
by which I mean the *exact* commands :-).

I realize that all might take half an hour or so, but we're pretty
dependent on clean reproduction recipes from users. You can greatly
increase the chances of that issue getting fixed by taking that time.

Thanks,
-Karl
