Interesting - but I found this explanation in the manual:
--merge When switching branches, if you have local modifications to
one or more files that are different between the current branch and
the branch to which you are switching, the command refuses to switch
branches in order to preserve your modifications in context.
So in my opinion it should have refused to switch branches!?
