Disabling the auto-merging feature

Hi,

We have recently noticed that SVN will auto-merge non-conflicting
changes.

We would prefer the behaviour that SVN does not auto-merge file, but
simply leaves them in a conflicted state so that the proposed merge has
to be checked manually. This issue has arisen through some files that
people were changing that are text based, but should not be auto merged.

We have set the svn:mime-type=application/octet-stream property on all
files that this is an issue with and this provides the desired behaviour
of leaving all files that would have been auto-merged in a conflicted
state, making it obvious to the developer that there are changes that
need checking, but this seems to give us problems with SVN blame where
it complains that it can't diff binary files!

Does anyone know a way of disabling the auto-merge feature of svn update
without setting the svn:mime-type property?

Thanks,

Graeme
