So, I posted to the SVN users list and figured out what is going on here.

I resolved the immediate problem by "svn mv" *before* the merge
(without a commit) to get the tree conflict out of the way, then "svn
merge", then "svn mv" and "svn rm" to get the final directory content
as desired.

I think TortoiseSVN has a problem in the content of the merge results.
From the SVN mailing list list, I got a response that:

From the command-line, the problematic adds are shown as relative
paths, which refer to *repository* paths:

A lib\win32\lib.d.lib
   C host
   A host\lib\lib.sln
   A host\lib\proj\lib.vcxproj
   A host\lib\proj\lib.vcxproj.filters
   A host\lib\proj\lib.vcxproj.user
   A host\lib\proj
   A host\lib

Note the top line has 'A' in the first column (this file actually gets
added) whereas the bottom lines all have 'A' in the same column as the
tree conflict, indicating these were NOT actually added to my working

As seen in my quoted text, TortoiseSVN tranlates these into *local*
paths inside the working copy, implying that the file actually got
created. I think instead of the quoted text, TortoiseSVN should have
presented something like this:

Tree conflict (Resolved): C:\Project_Files\WC\host
Not added: C:\Project_Files\WC\host\lib\lib.sln
Not added: C:\Project_Files\WC\host\lib\project\lib.vcxproj

or this:

Tree conflict (Resolved): C:\Project_Files\WC\host
Skipped remote add: http://example.com/SVN/lib/trunk/host/lib/lib.sln
Skipped remote add:

The current message gives a local working-copy path and says "added"
implying that something actually changed in my working copy.
