Nevermind, it turns out that its a limitation of Subversion, quoting http://git.or.cz/gitwiki/GitSvnComparsion:

   All changes made on the branch appear to be made by the merging user.

     * This means that from a historical perspective every line of code modified on the branch
will appear in the trunk as though it was 
written by the user who merged the branch. This is wrong if there were other users working
on that branch.

In my opinion that is very serious limitation, luckily enough, it will get addressed in Subversion
1.5:
