Did you merge the URL of A to your B working copy?

You should report this on the Subversion mailing list (users at
subversion tigris org). TSVN uses the Subversion library so if you could
get your working copy messed up that way, the bug must be in that library.

Also you should check whether one of the "known issues" for merge
tracking might apply:
