Merge property question

Hi - Can anyone tell me how svn:properties work in terms of merging.
The reason I ask is because I had the following scenario which gave
me a big headache.

The scenario went as follows all for the same file...

branch 1 - rev 10 - create new file & commit

branch 2 - rev 11 - merge rev 10 to this branch
branch 2 - rev 12 - add svn:eol-style = revision & svn:needs-lock = true

branch 1 - rev 13 - change a line
branch 1 - rev 14 - add the property svn:eol-style = native
branch 1 - rev 15 - change another line

Now if I tried to merge revs 13 - 15 to branch 2 I got a conflict.
If I perform a merge for each change individually things were OK.

It seemed to be as a result of the property changes but there was no
indication of this in the conflicted file. It just told me that the changes
made in rev 13 & rev 15 were conflicting.

Sorry if this sounds a bit confused but it was really odd & I wondered if
anyone had experienced something similar. I'm sure the conflicts were as a result
of the different property settings.

Is it possible to merge ranges & ignore property changes or not.

Thanks for any help - Simon
