Merge requests: Auto merge not possible when branch name contains slash

When a branch name contains one or more slashes, using the auto merge feature is not possible, even for simple changes.

Error message: “This merge request contains merge conflicts”

Branch name examples: (Git Flow)
Main: “develop”
Feature: “feature/branchname”

The naming structure makes sense in tools like Atlassian SourceTree, which displays branches like folders.
