>From `bzr help commit' :

Selective commits:
  If selected files are specified, only changes to those files are
  committed.  If a directory is specified then the directory and
  everything within it is committed.


  A selective commit after a merge is not yet supported.

So it is documented. Maybe VC could detect if there are pending merges
parsing the output of `bzr st', or parse the error message returned by
`bzr commit somefile' and detect that the failure was due to a pending
merge, hoping it is not translated to the local language etc. In any
case, it would require an ugly Bazaar-specific hack.

What bzr shouldn't do is to output a backtrace. I'll file a bug report
for that.
