Do you split and merge without moving the two pieces apart? Or are you moving them apart? Are you pressing Ctrl+W to merge?
On the experiment that I outlined I did not move the two halves. I just split, select, right-clicked and selected 'Merge'. However, the same thing happens when I use Ctrl+T and Ctrl+W. I noticed too that the increase in wave size occurs at the third, fifth, seventh, ninth, tenth, and eleventh time the merge is carried out. At the ninth instant onwards the increase occurs every time, and the increase seems greater than before.
I suspect that no increase is perceived in the first and second instant because the rate of increase is so small, and only appears every second instant because the rate of increase is becoming more perceptible, and every time from the ninth instant onwards because the increase is becoming much larger. Therefore, the increase in wave size (and volume) is a fixed percentage of the wave at the time of merge.
