This is where the problem is, you need to choose a range of revisions
to merge. Assuming that you want to merge the changes in your trunk
into the version-1.0 branch:
      From URL: /svn/projects/trunk/File.txt
      From Revision: The revision of the "version-1.0" branch creation
      To URL: /svn/projects/trunk/File.txt
      To Revision: The revision of the last commit you want to merge.

The "to URL" doesn't refer to where the changes are to be merged into,
but to the end of the range of changes to merge.

This is the expected behavior when no changes were actually merged.
Subversion *always* requires that you manually resolve conflicts, if
there had been a conflict, you would have had to resolve it.
