svn merge --reintegrate confusion

All,

I'm looking for some clarification of the behavior of the "svn merge --reintegrate" command in 1.5. The motivation is, I recently used this command to merge a branch into the trunk and, to my dismay, some files were changed back to old versions.

Here are a couple of models for how svn merge --reintegrate works, assuming that the command is executed in a trunk working directory.

Behavior 1: svn merge --reintegrate computes the diff between the most recent version of the trunk which was merged into Branch A and the current version of Branch A, and applies that to the working directory.

Behavior 2: svn merge --reintegrate $svnroot/branches/A computes the diff between the current version of the trunk and the current version of Branch A and applies that to the working directory.

I had thought that Behavior 1 was correct, but now I'm not sure. Which is correct? Or is it something else?

Many thanks in advance,

Reid
