subversion fails to detect correct merge direction (sync/reintegrate), how to override?

The new "automatic merge" feature in subversion 1.8 look promising, but in our case prevents merging the trunk into a branch since subversion incorrectly interprets this operation as a reintegration merge and complains about missing revisions which should have been merged first. I can force the merge by explicitly selecting the range of revisions not yet merged, but this is exactly what merge tracking should do for me. So I have two questions:
*) Is it possible to override subversion's decision on the merge type (i.e., force a sync merge)?
*) What could be the source of confusion which leads to the incorrect merge classification? Maybe some complex and/or broken svn:mergeinfo property?
Thanks & kind regards,
