There is no bug here. As Andy said, if you change the line ending the
file is different in Subversion's view. That's what the overlay is
telling you. There is no way to change this behaviour in Subversion
(although you can use svn:eol-style to force a particular line end).

I think the trunk version of TortoiseMerge is more tolerant of
different line endings, but I don't have it installed here to check.
Try a nightly build.
