merge problem. impossible to revert deleted file

Think I found a problem with svn 1.7.1 on Windows, where after a merge
and a tree conflict (annoying, since both dirs have same name), I ended
up with a file with status deleted (for unknown reason), and it seems
impossible to revert (undelete) this file.

I made a batch script where I believe I managed to reproduce the problem:

---start script---

REM change this to the dir you are running the script from
set wd=c:/temp/test

svnadmin create repo

svn mkdir file:///%wd%/repo/trunk -m test

svn co file:///%wd%/repo/trunk trunk1
svn co file:///%wd%/repo/trunk trunk2

svn copy trunk1 file:///%wd%/repo/branch -m branch

svn co file:///%wd%/repo/branch branch

pushd branch
md dir1
pushd dir1
echo > file2.txt
svn add *
svn commit -m test


pushd trunk1
svn update
md dir1
pushd dir1
echo > file1.txt
svn add *
svn commit -m test


pushd trunk2

svn merge file:///%wd%/repo/branch_at_4

REM tree conflict

svn resolve --accept=working dir1

svn up

REM Updating '.':
REM A dir1\file1.txt

REM It says dir1\file1.txt is added, but it's nowhere to be seen
dir dir1
svn status dir1

svn resolve --accept=working dir1
svn revert dir1\file1.txt

REM Nope, file is still deleted. Impossible to undelete it.


---end script---

Another small issue:
svn merge don't seem to like backslash in file urls:
C:\temp\test\trunk2>svn merge file:///C:\temp\test\trunk2/repo/branch_at_4
svn: E180001: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
svn: E180001: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL
svn: E180001: Unable to open repository

Otoh, svn co and svn mkdir etc. seems to work with backslash in file urls.
