Problems Merging from Trunk to Branch

Here's the scenario: we have our trunk, and a dev branch which was
created from revision 300 of the trunk. Sometimes we'll find a bug, fix
it on trunk, and want to merge that fix back into dev, when that same
file has also changed on dev. Here's the commands we run:

cd branches/dev
svn merge -r300:HEAD http://svn.example.org/foo/trunk/file.php file.php

However, this results in a conflict, and when I open
branches/dev/file.php, it shows the entirety of the dev version,
=======, then the entirety of the trunk version below that. Even though
in the test case I ran just now, the files are exactly the same other
than one line added to dev, and one line (in a different place) added to
the trunk version.

What am I doing wrong? Is there any way to merge the change from the
trunk back to dev, when both files were changed (in different places),
without it creating a conflict?
