pointing diff3-cmd to false.bat does not seem to work for me

I have noticed that you periodically are asked how to force tortoisesvn
to manually merge changes during an update.

The stock answer seems to be:

Settings -> Subversion configuration file -> click the edit button

Change the [helpers] section by adding:-

diff3-cmd = "C:\false.bat"


Creating a C:\false.bat which contains only the following line:-

exit /B 1




I have a test repository which contains a text file


I check out this repository to two folders subtest1 and subtest2


I make a change to the text file in subtest1 folder and commit

I navigate to subtest2 and update


I expect a forced conflict and have to manually merge, but I get an
automatic merge of my changes.


My understanding is that this is a client side setting, but if not
please point me to the correct mailing list.


Thanks for the great program.

If I can sort this out, then that will help my argument for swapping
over to subversion.
