Are you saying the problem exists when using that option? It
shouldn't as in the merge two trees scenario the revisions are not
from the same tree. If your server is on SVN 1.5+ it should be really
rare to even need to use that merge option.

We still choose to perform reverse merges from the History view.
Basically, you choose the revisions you want to back out from the
History view and take option to revert those revisions.
