Merge Behaviour.

Hi Everyone,

In the sense of there are no stupid questions.... please find below my
stupid question!
What is the expected behaviour of svn merge?
I have two files


using the following command;
svn merge -r 1234:head /trunk/directoryA/file1 /trunk/directoryB/file3

I expected all changes that were made file1 from revision 1235: head
to be placed into file3.

What I have found in file 3 is is in fact the contents of file 1.
Ie. lines in file 1 that were NOT changed in the revision range
specified in the merge, were merged into the destination file if the
lines were different between src and dest.

If this is Normal behaviour it certainly isn't what I expected. - I
expected just the changes, alone, to go to the destination.

using svn --version I receive;
svn, version 1.5.2 (r32768)

The Repository is also 1.5.2

TIA for any help you might be able to provide.
