Thanks Mark,
that's quite exactly what i've done.. even using the bash, the messages i
can read are about files "added" and "skipped" (by "skipped" it means that
thay doesn't exists in the target repository..so they are deleted (!) ) ..
no file update, i just don't understand..

so this is the output if i try to merge from the bugfix trunk to the new
development branch:

svn merge --ignore-ancestry
svn:// merge

..so now i get the bugfix branch with the following changes:
  files that are only in the dev. branch are added,
  files that are only in the bugfix branch are deleted,
  no files are updates (as of the output), but the files in the merge are
the ones in the dev. branch..
..so, what i get is exactly the copy of the dev. branch :/

I'd really appreciate if someone can help!
