Please ignore my previous post. Ben's answer is much more accurate than
the solution that I suggested.

No idea about how TortoiseSVN's merging command works, or why this move
may have screwed things up. Please send your question to the
TortoiseSVN mailing lists; this list is about the svn core software and
commandline client.

In the commandline client world, you would simply cd into your trunk
working copy, and run

   svn merge privatebranchURL@81 taskbranchURL@HEAD

Remember that merge compares two trees, and applies the diff to your
working copy. In your situation, these are the two trees to compare.
