This merges everything from *185051* to 186476.

Think about it in terms of diff: 'svn diff -r185050:186476' clearly
means "compare the tree as it was after r185050 was committed with the
tree as it was after r186476 was committed"

If you want to merge the change that was committed in r185050, you need
to start at r185049.

If there aren't many revisions to merge, you can also merge them
individually with -cN, which is a shortcut for -r(N-1):N.

Perhaps I should document this better on the wiki - my examples all
merge individual revisions, not ranges.
