This is definitely a problem, but not an easy one to fix, so I hope to
address it after darcs 1.0 is released.  The first thing I want to look at
after 1.0 is the issue of merges and merge conflicts, and one of the
features I want to add is keeping track of what conflict resolutions exist
in the working directory.  There is also a problem in that if you pull
several patches in sequence after a conflict, you get conflicts with the
conflict resolution, which leads to messed up resolutions.
