multiple merge question

Hi all,

I'm going to start this email by saying that I'm typically very
comfortable merging in my native CVS environment but I must be missing
something in SVN as I'm hitting a problem merging a binary file.

I have a file:


and I want to merge it with:


Earlier today I was asked to merge this file, and I did so with:

svn merge -r 12044:16776

from within


which is my WC. I then committed that, tagged it and deployed to
test. Someone found a problem and asked me to merge again (the
someone in this case is a non-technical user who is making changes on
trunk and asking me to deploy them - I realise that in a perfect world
I would ask her to checkout the branch and make her changes there, but

I am now trying to merge again like so:

svn merge -r 16777:16784

but am getting a conflict. I'm tempted to just copy the file across
by hand, but being new to SVN I'd like to make sure I understand
everything thats going on here. Why is it that having already merged
the changes that had been made to the file since the branch was
copied, I know cant merge the remaining changes?

Any tips would be gratefully appreciated. I'm sure I must be doing
something stupid.
