Viewing results of an automatic merged

Thought this would be a FAQ, but could find reference to it. Scenario is no branches, no conflicts, just a trunk and two users.

User A modifies file F.
User A commits file F.
User B modifies file F.
User B updates their working copy.

Tortoise shows:

Command Update
Merged file F.
Completed At revision: x

No dramas, but User B being a conscientious person, wants to check if A's changes really don't clash with their own. Unfortunately, unlike a conflict, we can't view the "mine", "theirs", "base" and "merged" results. The best option from the right-click menu on the merged file is "Compare with working copy", which shows A and B's changes as if they were both made by the same person.

What I'm looking for is a way to view something similar to the conflict resolution option, where I can see person A's changes, my own changes, and the merged result.

FWIW, I use Beyond Compare to do conflict resolution.

It seems a real pity that an automatic, conflict-free merge on update can potentially create bugs because it's not easy to see what the changes were.
