Well, I think both should give you the same result; the same changes
and the same merge parents.
Actually this was wrong; with octopus, three records are recorded
as merge parents (HEAD... OPENPAM^... OPENPAM...), on the other hand
only two (HEAD... OPENPAM...) by the default merge method.  I don't
know how it affects later merges, though.
Please just use

	git merge -s resolve crater/vendor/OPENPAM

That did the trick for me.  Doesn't buildworld though, so I won't push it :)
