I assume that you mean that the branch directory first exists in revision

You might want to output the diff into a file and browse the file to look
for what is causing all the differences. My suspicion is that you have
altered the end-of-line characters, replaced tabs with spaces, or done some
such formatting change. You may want to do this to get a cleaner diff:

    svn diff --diff-cmd=diff -x--ignore-all-space -r78:82 ...directory...

If you have Gnu diff, that will show all the changes that are not just
whitespace changes.

I would check again that you did the diff correctly, as that is not correct

In Subversion, a branch is just a directory, so there is no branch history
separate from directory history.
