Just before yours, there was another report of a crash during merge
(with --reintegrate, but perhaps that's unrelated):
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2011-01/0226.shtml.

That user reported that it worked with an older version of the client
(in his case, it worked with 1.6.12). Can you try with an older client
as well (try 1.6.13 perhaps, that's the release just before 1.6.15
(1.6.14 was never released)).

If that works, that could be a good workaround for you, and very
useful information for the developers as to where to look ...

Other useful information to help investigate the problem:
- The crash dump/log file.
- The exact commands you used when reproducing this from the command
line (feel free to obfuscate names/paths/files).

Thanks,
