Hi All,

I have used subversion for over 2year and this is the first time I came
across this problem. Even though this is a test scenario a similar issue
could arise in live environment. I am using svn 1.4.6 on Windows 2003
server SP1.

Scenario 2 works as expected but Scenario 1 fails with a conflict.

Any assistance in this regard is greatly appreciated.

Scenario 1
A new file abc.txt is created.

File name abc.txt
Enter -- First line
Commit (r1)
Enter Second line
Commit (r2)
Enter Third line
Commit (r3)
Enter Fourth line
Commit (r4)
Fifth line
Commit (r5)

Attempting to rollback svn merge -r 3:2 causes a conflict.
Attempting to rollback svn merge -r 5:4 succeeds.

Scenario 2
Editing the above file as below

File name abc.txt
First line
Second line
Enter --> This is the sixth line
Commit (r6)
Third line
Fourth line
Fifth line
Seventh line
Commit (r7)

Attempting to rollback svn merge -r 6:5 succeeds.
