Ok, if the majority want's this I can't help it, but I think there
should be a clear hint in the GUI that this is handled different from
the cmdline client in TSVN. I use TSVN and SVN for quite some time now
and would think of me as a pro developer but got traped by this and
found no clear hint that this is a "feature". So I would question if
this is clear to every user.

And to stress this again:
Why is this behaviour not consistent? When choosing "Merge to
different trees" the revisisions are interpreted like in SVN.
This is confusing since in both dialogs the user is asked to mark
revisions in the log dialog. In one case the user has to mark the last
revision not yet merged and in the second case he is asked to mark the
last revision he merged. I can't see any advantage in this behaviour.
Especially without a clear statement of what Interpretation is used
how and when in the GUI.
