Can you please provide more of the actual output you are seeing?

It should report all of them, during update, merge, and status.

Have you run 'svn status' on the working copy?
It should list all tree conflicts. If you want help with analysing
the conflicts which are happening, please post the entire output
of merges you are running, with the output of 'svn status -v' before
and after any merges.

Note that any existing tree-conflict victim will be skipped by a
subsequent merge. svn assumes it's not safe to do anything to them.
You should probably resolve all tree conflicts before running another merge.
