The fact that your bisect ended at a merge essentially means that it is
invalid. As a merge does not introduce any actual change (unless it
includes changes to resolve conflicts), it normally cannot be the cause
of a regression.

So either you made a mistake when marking a commit as good or bad during
the bisect, or the "badness" does not trigger reliably, resulting in you
incorrectly marking a bad commit as good.

My suggestion would be to run the bisection again from the start.
