If I am getting this right, the mergepoint is stored in the working folder
(sandbox) not in the repository.

If this is the case:
- one user merges 2 branches
- assume that development continues on both branches
- when a different user merges the branches a second time he will get the
conflicts of the first merge too

Or is the mergepoint committed to the repository too?

By the way is there does not seem to be any (or sufficient) documentation
about merge points. If anybody finds or writes something please post a link.
