the failed auto merge happens because you modify the same file on both that
saved in the stash and in b2 which you merge prior to popping the stash.
When git want to apply changes that recorded in the stash, git found that
the file has changed since the last time you do a git stash so git can't
apply the changes cleanly thus the failed auto merge.
In that case after doing 'git stash pop' you just need to resolve the
conflict, doing 'git status' will tell you which files that has conflict in
them and then you just need to decide which changes are the 'correct' one.
Git make this easier for you by marking the conflicted part with '<<<<<<'
After you've done with the conflicted files just save them and do a 'git
stash drop' to remove the merged stash and you'll be green again.
