The only time you see a 'G' is if there are local changes to merge.
Prior to 1.5 you would only have got a 'G' if you merged into a
working copy that has uncommited changes. With merge tracking in
1.5+, the merge process can touch the same file multiple times, in
which case you will get a 'U' the first time and then a 'G' on the
subsequent updates to the file.
