Merge Module no fatal error but reports an error.

I just created a merge module to handle some development changes. It builds perfectly fine in the IDE. However when I build it using IsCmdBld.exe it kind of reports an error. As far as I can tell the merge module is behaving just fine.

ISDEV : fatal error 0:
Standard\Release - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Why would it say 0 fatal errors but report one error that doesn't appear in the log. I've attached the log below:

Re: Merge Module no fatal error but reports an error.

It appears to have something to do with the properties that I'm passing into the MM. I use the very same properties for the main installer. I verified the properties exist in the MM.

If I pass the following the line below:
-z ProductVersion=2.6.0.109 -z BldLabel=2014-10-06_16-04-49_109 -z buildnum=109 -a Standard -c Release
The result:
ISDEV : fatal error 0:
Standard\Release - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

If I pass:
-a Standard -c Release
The result:
Standard\Release - 0 error(s), 0 warning(s)

There is a log file called errors in the build location but the file has no contents.
