This is typical when a merge has been repeated between two branches, and
the diff was migrated during an earlier merge.  To avoid this, pick a
common ancestor after the first merge.  We've discussed this recently in
this forum; tag the results of every merge and use these tags to identify
the common ancestor for the next merge.
