I also expected step 4 to conflict, and I also don't get a conflict:
### Making a Greek Tree for import...
### Importing it...
Committed revision 1.
9,% cd wc1/trunk/
9,% $svn cp -q A A2
9,% $svn ci -q -m branch
9,% $svn ci -q -mrm A
9,% $svn up -q
9,% cp A2/mu A/mu
9,% $svn ci -q -madd A
9,% $svn up
At revision 4.
9,% $svn merge -c 4 A A2
--- Recording mergeinfo for merge of r4 into 'A2':
9,% $svn ci -mmerge
Committed revision 5.
9,% cat A2/mu
This is the file 'A/mu'.
Maybe Johan can explain that :)
