If you do a merge, and resolve the tree conflict, and then commit the merge... subsequent
merges will no longer try to merge in the delete change and you shouldn't see further issues.

If you keep seeing the same conflict, it sounds like you aren't committing the merge-info
that is set on the project root. (you should always merge from the project root).
