merge-recursive: Fix sorting order and directory change assumptions

We cannot assume that directory/file conflicts will appear in sorted
order; for example, 'letters.txt' comes between 'letters' and
'letters/file'.

Thanks to Johannes for a pointer about qsort stability issues with
Windows and suggested code change.
