I finaly managed to find out where this was comming from. For the
record, I post it here.

It is due to the post-commit script. This later was returning non-0, and
sending some output on stderr. The 'MERGE failed' message was the output
of the failing command in the post-commit script. Also, as the script
was returning non-0, the client thought the commit failed, and didn't
update the working copy. Though the commit was succesful, as the error
apears only in the post-commit.
