Merge issue - Tree Conflict - one file in source branch has action = "replacing"

I don't have any idea how this happened, but in one of my many
checkins there is one file that has an action of "replacing". There
are about 15 files in the checkin, 10 "Added", 4 "Modified" and 1
"Replacing". I don't think I did anything different with that file
than I did with the other 4. But somehow it got a "replacing".

I am now trying to merge this branch ("Source Branch") with a second
branch ("Target Branch") and that file has also been changed in the
target branch (though it was "Modified" and not "Replacing").

Either way, when I try to merge the branches, I get a tree conflict on
this file.

I tried:

- Deleting the file from source branch, committing the delete, and
then merging
- Deleting the file from target branch, committing the delete, and
then merging
- Deleting the file from both, committing the deletes, and then
- Reverting the changes in the target branch and then merging (when I
do the revert, it shows that it is checking out the file onto my
- Reverting the changes in the source branch and then merging (this
one is interesting, b/c the revert doesn't change the file at all - it
doesn't show any activity in the tortoiseSVN window that pops up - it
should show the checkout of the pre-replaced file)

None of these things help at all - I still get the tree conflict.

Any ideas? Please help!
