That error message tells you that the unified-diff-parser has
encountered a line in the diff which it doesn't recognize.

It's not a file in your working copy.

Try this again. Then, before you close the error message go to %TEMP%
and look for a file with the name svnXXX.tmp - open the one with the
latest filedate with a text editor. There you'll find the line which
TMerge couldn't recognize.
It would help if you could send me that file, or at least tell me the
lines around the reported one.
