Problem with interactive merge (conflicts of binary files)

I've searched the mailing list for this topic but couldn't find a thread with a solution for my problem.
From time to time I do an interactive merge (e.g. integrating changes from trunk into a branch) with conflicting versions of binary files. In this situation the 'interactive merge' dialog of TSVN (http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/images/MergeConflictCallback.png) pops up. Now if I choose to use the revision of the repository ('theirs'), nothing happens and the conflict remains. The local file is not overwritten by the version of the repository. I have to do the same thing again in the 'resolve conflicts' dialog using the context menu of the file list which displays conflicts.
I find that very uncomfortable. I think that this behaviour started with the 1.6.0 client. I tried 'interacte merge' with the CollabNet command-line client for windows and there the prompt for conflicting files works as expected. Our server has currently version 1.5.4, but I have reproduced that behaviour with a demo client/server-installation as well (version 1.6.1). Changing the svn:mime-type property doesn't seem to help.
Perhaps someone has the same problem / knows a solution?

thank you for your help
