svn merge reports skipped misisng fictional files

I just don't grok Subversion sometimes. Here I try to merge and get an
error about a fictional extra subfolder.

    svn mkdir http://server/svn/src/branches/bob
This one I grok. It makes a folder named "bob".

    svn copy http://server/svn/src/trunk/xyz
I grok this too. When I checkout bob I get a folders bob and bob/xyz and
their contents alright. I even see the repository looking normal when I
list it.

    svn merge -r 7394:7401 http://server/svn/src/trunk
But when I try to merge from trunk I get the error for skipping two
missing targets, mysteriously named "...bob\xyz\xyz\file1.cs" and
"...bob\xyz\xyz\file2.resx". This extra layer of \xyz\ makes no sense.
There was never such an extra subfolder that I can recall, but maybe
there was in the far gone mists of time. Long before I did the mkdir.

This smells faintly of another of my recently reported problems with
merge. I blew away the old branch and started from a fresh copy.
"Fortunately" I ran into -this- S.N.A.F.U. before I started developing
in the new branch.
