If you're able to build from source the best report can be to build 
Subversion by passing --enable-maintainer-mode to configure and then 
running the merge via gdb.  You don't need to install the version with 
debugging symbols to do this (just configure and make).

The following should do the trick (where BUILDDIR is where you built 
libtool e gdb --args $BUILDDIR/subversion/svn/svn merge 
^/offline/asmm/branches/uat/Production --verbose

After gdb starts type r and press enter.

You should get a backtrace when the segfault happens.  Post the 
backtrace here.

That is going to be the best way.  If you can't do that you're probably 
going to have to try and describe the changes that are being merged.  
If you can find a way to reproduce it from a fresh repo with minimal 
steps that's even better.
