Make sure you don't have another file with the same name in the original
directory. Even if the file differs in case (e.g. file vs. File) - on
Windows that's the same file.

You should also try the Subversion command line client (the official
binary of Subversion) to do your merge. If that one complains too, then
you have to report this on their mailing list.
The reason for this is that TSVN uses the Subversion library for such
commands - TSVN itself doesn't do the merge. So if the merge fails, then
it's most likely a bug in the Subversion library, not TSVN.
