svn merge lies?

Has anyone seen a case where 'svn merge' lists a bunch of files as 'A'
or 'U' during the merge, but actually does a merge conflict 'C' instead?

The 'svn merge' output says "A" or "U", but 'svn status' lists them as
'C' and they do have merge conflict files (left, right, working.) This
affected both text and binary files. In my case, the text output from
'svn merge' listed 61 conflicts, but actually generated 254 conflicts.
Which was a rude shock since we were working off of the 61 conflict
list.

This was in a clean, newly created workspace. This was a real 'svn
merge' and NOT a --dry-run (I'm already aware of how --dry-run
under-reports.)

It looks like I'm not the first person to see this behavior, but there
was no resolution:

This is with Subversion 1.3.0, in a clean workspace.
