This problem is somehow conntected with sparse di-
rectories. If I update the working copy of trunk so
that it has the file affected in 1823, reintegration
completes successfully, but that file is not modifed
and is not shown by 'svn diff' after 'svn merge
--reintegrate'.

Now can bypass the problem, but I should like to
know why it occurs in the first place, so I have re-
verted the merge and can reproduce it again. I will
appreciate your help in tracking-down its cause.
