Svnmerge and svn 1.5.4 conflict problem - svn: Error reading spooled REPORT request response

From: Sue Pharoah <Sue.Pharoah_at_aquilauk.co.uk>

    We are trying to upgrade to the subversion client 1.5.4 on windows.
However due to limitations and outstanding issues of the new svn merge
functionality we want to continue to use svnmerge.py until these are
    We are running on windows XP and use the svnmerge.exe wrapper to run

    It all works fine until there is a conflict, when this error occurs:

C:\Eclipse\je68workspace\je68>svnmerge merge -s -S RELEASE-6.7.0
svn merge -r 54419:54420
http://mantistest.hal.co.uk/repos/Administrator/branches/RELEASE-6.7.0 .
svnmerge: command execution failed (exit code: 1)
svn merge -r 54419:54420
http://mantistest.hal.co.uk/repos/Administrator/branches/RELEASE-6.7.0 .
Conflict discovered in
Select: (p) postpone, (df) diff-full, (e) edit,
        (h) help for more options: svn: Can't read stdin: End of file
svn: Error reading spooled REPORT request response

  There is indeed a conflict, but it is impossible to deal with it as it
is not possible to select the options and the change [ as a conflict ]
never gets written out.

  If I set the SVN_EDITOR e.g. to notepad or wordpad, it makes no
difference - though if I run the same svn merge command without the
svnmerge.py wrapper I am able to select the edit, postpone and diff full
options as well as use the appropriate editor.

   This does not happen with 1.4 client - it simply writes out the
conflicting file with conflict markers.

Any help would be appreciated.
