these suggestions definately helped, got a working version now! :-)

I tried option 2 on my XP box before going home but the only difference
was that the merge operation bailed out one file later with exactly the
same error message.
Continued at home: uninstalled my 1.0.4 Subversion client, fetched
version 1.1.0 rc1 (that includes neon 0.24-7), built it with SSL support
on my Linux box, and retried the exercise with http compression turned
off: checking out a fresh working environment and merging one branch
into the other -- that worked flawlessly. A late but good start to my
I will dig deeper tomorrow to find out whether the issue is influenced
at all by http compression.

No problem, I don't mind investing some time and effort to trace down
the problem as long as I have a clue in which direction to start
looking. :-) So thanks for your assistance!
