Can you show us the merge command? Is the repository public?

(Is the "strange" thing the absence of the "branches/" component in the
URL shown in the 'svn info' output above?)

I think % should be fine. But it's hard to tell whether this problem
is in the cvs2svn conversion, or in the merge, or in the commit of the
merge. We're going to need to be able to reproduce it. Knowing the
merge command and its results will help. We need insane amounts of
detail :-). A transcript would be perfect.

(Oh, are you using cvs2svn? And if not, how are you converting?)
