[issue819] no conflict reported when merging conflicting file types

New submission from Bryan O'Sullivan <bos at serpentine.com>:

The new test-merge-types test in crew checks what we do when merging conflicting
changes to a file's type.  On one branch, it becomes executable.  On the other,
it becomes a symlink.

It seems clear that this should result in a conflict and HGMERGE being called,
but instead the symlink always wins, no matter whether it's the left or right
parent.
