Maybe you should use a separate app like Win Merge or Beyond Compare, since you can configure Tortoise to use them instead of TortoiseMerge. Have you tried that, yet?

13872 build still incorrectly detects UTF8 encoding.
For example, files containing only ASCII(without locale-dependent
symbols) are still treated as UTF8 CRLF. But in fact they are ANSI
files. The worst is that, after editing these files in
TortoiseMerge(adding any locale-dependent symbol), they will actually
become UTF8, which is not acceptable.
