  I believe I followed the same sequence of operations you describe on
SVN 1.4.2, and the commit on the branch of the merge (which includes
the delete as well as the 'svn cat' restore) worked just fine.

  To resolve your issue, you should be able to simply undo the svn cat
restore by deleting and then using svn copy to restore the file with
the correct ancestry. You revert your branch and re-run the merge (or
just leave revert that file and commit the merge, as it shouldn't
change anyway in the correct merge).

  Here is the log of the repository in which I tried to recreate the
issue, please let me know if I missed something:
