Merging question

Hello everyone,

Here's the line I executed:
E:\harry>svn merge --dry-run file:///repos/trunk_at_12

I expected SVN to tell me the file would be updated. So, why didn't it
tell me so ? Here's the history of the file:
* Created in rev 7
* Updated in rev 13
* Branch created from rev 12 in rev 16 (svn copy -r 12 file:///.../trunk
* Renamed to DefaultBuilder, moved to impl/ in rev 17 and updated in
branch X

So, in the branch I am working in right now, the file does not exist
anymore. So, what I believe I could/should do then is to:
1. Update the branch WC to the revision just before the copy (16)
2. Apply the merge like what I said on top
3. Update again to HEAD of branch, keeping local mods
4. Compile, test and commit

Trying that now... And it almost works. Step #3 lost my local mods. Is
what I am trying to do even supported ?

Versions are Win 2K SP3 over ra_local and SVN:
svn, version 0.24.2 (r6284)

Thanks !
