Merging displays different information

Dear All,

We have been using 1.4 version of tortoise for maintaining our
repository version for a while now. Recently we also have upgraded the
client side to use 1.5.2, and may I say I just love the new interface.

I have a question though, while merging does the merging technique in
CLI differs from the merging technique at GUI? I have tried a merge
between trunk and branch and CLI provides a different reading in the
merge log to that of GUI's log.

CLI reported : 13 conflicts, 3 deleted, 27 added and 10 skipped.
GUI reported : 2 conflicts, 1 deleted, 38 added and 10 skipped.

However, when we checked the outcome, we got same number of conflict
output. There was actually 13 conflicted files.

Here are my questions:

1. Does GUI's default setting ignores anything, why was it catching
conflicts and marking them as ADD?
2. what is the proper CLI imitation command for the GUI's default
merge settings?

3. How can I make sure both replies same way, because we would require
merging code very frequently and we do not wish to spend too much time
worrying about the merger.
