            Bug ID: 5805
           Summary: Amend doesn't check for outstanding merge conflicts
           Product: Mercurial
           Version: 4.4.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: bug
          Priority: normal
         Component: Mercurial
          Assignee: bugzilla at mercurial-scm.org
          Reporter: matt_harbison at yahoo.com
                CC: mercurial-devel at mercurial-scm.org

I tweaked some code and ran a test a couple of revisions prior to the tip,
accepting the changes.  I then did an update, but bailed on resolving the test
conflicts because there were too many, and simply reran the test.  I totally
forgot about the unmerged state until I tried updating elsewhere.  But in the
meantime, it let me (evolve) amend, and `hg ci --amend` (with evolve disabled).
 The working directory is clean (and summary agrees, though it notes one
unresolved file, as does `hg resolve --list`).  Vanilla commit and update are
both blocked.

I can see a selective amend (-I/-X/path) after an update being useful even if
there are unresolved files, as long as the selected ones aren't unresolved. 
But allowing an unresolved file to be amended feels like a bug.  If not, it
should probably clear the unresolved state.
