This should work if you cd into the foo/ directory.

So you ran this from 'above' the working copy, on the directory named 'foo'?

It's debatable. If I want to quickly merge a change to one file that
somebody made, it's really convenient to just type

     cd working_copy
     svn merge -r103:104 http://host/repos/foo.c

...and then have the merge command automatically assume that the target
is the 'foo.c' in my working copy.
