Very hard to tell without more information.
The reason could simply be that a user didn't carry out a merge correctly.

To argue that it is a bug, you'd need to present a script that runs
svn commands and shows the problem, starting off from an empty
repository, doing merges etc. until you get to the point where
the problem appears. That's the best way to demonstrate bugs, and
also a good way of starting someone off with getting the bug fixed.
