I'm trying to 3-way merge an update from a vendor branch into my working copy, using something like the following incantation (or it's equivalent in TortoiseSVN):
svn merge --ignore-ancestry http://repository/vendor/lib/v1 http://repository/vendor/lib/v2 C:\WC\lib\
However every time I try it, --dry-run or not, it fails. Never on the same file, sometimes on a GET, sometimes on a PROPFIND and always finishing the error report with:
could not connect to server (http://istar-server)
Error reading spooled REPORT request response
I'm about half way through a full checkout of the repository, so am reasonably sure it's not a trivial network/server issue.
Any ideas, or things to try would be very appreciated.
