The problem I see with your interpretation of what went wrong (which I
simply assume to know), is that you attribute the resulting conflict
markers to git-cherry-pick not working as expected.
I suspect that git-cherry-pick just doesn't know where to put the patch
and defaults to git-merge looking for common ancestors in order to find
out - which he does. However, git-merge is still not able to merge
without a conflict. I don't think any of git's merge strategies will do
what you hope for in this example (because I tried them), but there are
ways to favor different behavior (merge strategies), for example favor
the other guy (the commit you're picking), such as the following example
git cherry-pick b931360 --strategy=recursive -Xtheirs
Please note that while I did test your example, I am not a git developer
(so I have not seen the actual implementation) and I might be wrong
about what actually happened. A second - more educated - opinion on this
would be great
