We should probably just make gnome-vfs always merge. However, i'm not
sure your patch is enough (see e.g. the comment in the bug "merging
instead of overwriting during a confilct is tricky because it requires a
way more complicated preflight."). 

Anyway, we're totally frozen for 2.6.0 at the moment, so i won't have
time to look at this right now.
