crash when merging

I've got a small problem. As reported on the TSVN mailing list here:

an automatic merge can crash.

The command line client does not, because it first checks the
relationship of the urls:
merge-cmd.c, line 109ff:
                  sourcepath1, &peg_revision1,
                  targetpath, &unspecified_revision, ctx, scratch_pool),
        _("Source and target must be different but related branches"));

To reproduce the crash with the CL client, simply remove that check and
do the merge.

Now what should I do in TSVN? That check API is internal, so it's not
available for TSVN. How can I reject the merge before calling
svn_client_merge_peg5 to avoid the crash?

And why is that check not done in svn_client_merge_peg5 if it's required
to do so?
