Yes indeed, which is a why a reverse-merge isn't always the best
answer. Here are things to consider:

  * use the --dry-run switch with your merge command, you can see
exactly what's going to happen.

  * sometimes it's okay to do a merge that's "too big", because you can
simply 'svn revert' the extra local mods you don't want.

  * if you want a direct, pinpoint solution, then forget about doing a
reverse merge, and just run 'svn cp URL wc'. There's a very specific
section in chapter 4 about resurrecting deleted items that explains
this.
