When this happens, the only work around appears to be to specify the revision range to merge explicitly, which is very confusing and error prone for less experienced users.

Can you provide a minimal reproduction recipe (starting with a new repository)
that demonstrates the issue? It's very difficult to diagnose merge issues
without looking at the repository (which I'm going to assume you can't let us
do, though if you could that may be helpful) because the history is very
important to the behavior of merge.
