no ancestry information????

Hopefully someone can help me out...

I'm testing out subversion and working on setting up a branch per
developer paradigm. Towards that end, I've found the svnmerge tool and
am in the process of setting it up. I've been following the
instructions as listed on http://www.dellroad.org/svnmerge/index.

The instructions for the multi-way branch setup indicate to run the
following on my branch to initialize the svnmerge tool with the trunk:

$ cd /opt/svnWork/tgreenbe/im_repos/branches/tgreenbe
$ svnmerge init -f commit.txt /myproject/trunk

Note: im_repos is the name of my repository and "tgreenbe" is the name
of the branch I've created.

After running that, a property is added to the top-level directory.
When I attempt to commit the top-level directory of my branch, I get the

$ svn commit -F commit.txt .
svn: '/opt/svnWork/tgreenbe/im_repos/branches' has no ancestry

Notice that the the error msg removes the final "tgreenbe" directory

Here's some additional info:

- I can commit a specified file. I only have problems with when using
"." or leaving the PATH field blank.
- This problem only occurs on the branches I've created. I can modify a
top-level file on a working copy of my trunk, checkin with just a "."
and it will work fine.

Any idea why svn can't find ancestry information? Does that error msg
indicate that my branch was created incorrectly? If so, can I create
the appropriate ancestry information without recreating my branch?

Thanks in advance,
