I'm using the haxx server to track the list. For some reason, I managed to
miss my initial mail there.

No - as I mentioned, the ranges are actually calculated by TSVN and reflect
correctly the history of 'URL'. Of course, TSVN could be wrong, but I
checked that this is not the case here.

Thanks for the link. Very interesting thread. There may be good fundamental
reasons for this, but as an end user I'm surprised that there can be a
difference between

        svn merge -r2:4 URL


        svn merge -r2:3 -r3:4 URL

Is this really by design?

I managed to reproduce this with a test repo; see my response to Julian
