Have you tried doing the same merge from the command line? Subclipse
does not do the work of the merge, we just run an API that is
equivalent to the command line. If you install this OSX binary, you
will get the command line client AND also be able to use JavaHL in


I would suggesting doing that so that we can rule out whether this is
an issue with SVNKit. The next thing would be to review the merge
options you are specifying.
