You should attempt to merge rather than test merge. The error may not occur in that case. You won't mess anything up because the merge only happens in your working copy. If there is a problem with it you can always do a revert rather than a commit. (Assuming you have no uncommitted changes in your target working copy prior to the merge... which is highly recommended).
