I've now written an XFAIL test for merging the same change change twice.
Patch attached. The test fails as expected due to the lack of conflict.
This is the first test I've ever written for subversion, so there are
probably some improvement opportunities. I suspect that one weak spot is
that a "greek-tree" structure is generated without being used in the test.
Also, comparison of console output for merge results feels a little fragile.

Please let me know if there are any comments to the patch, and I'll do my
best to improve it. Otherwise, it would be great it the test could be
integrated, so that issue #4405 can receive some test coverage.

Thanks in advance,
