If they are using Subclipse, they might be using the Synchronize view to
do everything. This will show a conflict on the item, but if they are
inexperienced, perhaps they are just taking the "Mark as Merged" option
without having first merged the changes? If they did this, then that
would update their local revision, while preserving their current local
contents.

If that is the case, instruct them to use the Update option so that
Subversion can automerge the contents and if any conflicts are produced,
they can then resolve them before committing.
