Merge Command Output Different from Status Output

From: Ward, Mark <MWard_at_netopia.com>

svn version 1.3.0 (r17949)

The svn merge command's output is showing a different number of updated
files than are shown as modified by a svn status command executed
immediately afterward. All of the files that are listed by merge, then
not by status, are binary. The final results of the svn status command
is what was expected and correct.

svn merge URL1 URL2 .
U File1.bin
U File2.bin
U File3.bin
U File3.src

svn status
M File3.bin
M File3.src

For context, the merge is from a bug fix branch into our production
release which addressed File3.*. Prior to performing the merge, the bug
fix branch was brought up to date with previous changes introduced into
the production release (File1.bin and File2.bin) since the time of its
original copying to check for conflicts and perform QA tests.

What is the reason for the difference in the output of these two
commands?
Is it something unique to binary file types?
Is there a verbose mode on the merge to understand better how its logic
is being applied?

Please let me know what, if any, additional information I might provide
to help illumniate this issue such as providing logs, revision numbers,
etc. at the various steps and stages.

Cheers,
Mark
