What constitutes conflicting vs. non-conflicting changes?

That really gets to the root of my confusion--I wasn't sure why, when I
created a conflict on purpose to better understand what was going on,
those files sometimes appeared and sometimes didn't. I guess it was
because svn sometimes considered my changes to be conflicting and other
times (e.g. if I added a new line at the beginning of one copy and a
different new line at the end of the other copy) non-conflicting.

thanks,

Bob
