It only shows the changed properties.
What would you suggest the UI should look like for this?
Maybe a new dialog with a list of changed properties where doubleclicks
then open TMerge?

Fixed in r22816.

Yes, that's by design. The same way you can double click on unversioned
files and TMerge opens.

We had that once. But people complained: they still want to edit the

Do we really want this?
If we do, we have to make some way to still allow editing, maybe via a
new button/menu (e.g., "make editable").
