Suppose we have merge dictionary GridRes where we override several templates for grid

Suppose we have resource dictionary AllResources where we merged GridRes

Suppose we have a form with a grid where we programmatically or via xaml loaded AllResources as merged dictionary.

Override templates were not overrided with redefined for grid (but when we copy them from gridRes to Resources of window all goes fine)

So mergeddictionary's merged dictionaries are not handled well.

Interesting that this only has roughly 10 votes. The web is full of questions relating to this.

etc. Google/Bing it if you really want to know how bad the issue is :)
I'm frustrated, trying to make a Prism app, and think oh yah, I'll start putting all my styles into dictionaries, oh yah have to merge them... BOOOM, oh yah, that's why my styles are in dictionaries, cause life kinda sucks when you try to do things right with wpf :)

We see the same thing.

When we nest merge dictionaries together of 3 levels or deeper things don't work. The suggested workaround to create a "dummy" default style at the root or anywhere else also doesn't fix anything. Seems like a bug to me.Please fix.
