Looks right to me.

You're misinterpreting the message.  It's finding the changes between
Release_2_2_0 (1.7) and Release_2_2_0_Branch ( and then merging
those changes into the current working directory revision (which is
presumably based on 1.8).

Because those lines weren't changed on the branch.  You only get a
conflict if the same line is changed in both places; otherwise, CVS just
quietly merges the changes.
