It sounds like you are using the (interactive) merge tool from the Parcel Editor add-in. At some point it was core I think but for some reason ESRI did not include it at 10.1. I have seen that bug before, but I apologize for not recalling what service pack it was. I have put in a request to bring it back. Hopefully it will be available at 10.1 sp1.
A workaround is for you to use the merge courses tool that applies a tolerance to the entire construction to merge lines and create the linepoints. I use .033 which equals about 2 minutes. For best results, use a small tolerance and delete the original parcels (checkbox). Note: You can clean up any unneeded linepoints afterwards by using the delete linepoint tool (disadvantage of the tolerance and global functioning of this tool).
As I said before hopefully the interactive merge you describe will be added back to core with the next service pack.
