If the newly added files are in a folder that does not exist in the
repository, and that folder was not created as part of the commit being
merged, then you will get this message since the folder it is trying to
add the file to is "missing".
This can also happen if you haven't updated the workspace with the
version of the trunk that does have those folders.
That's a couple cases I've run into.

You should probably boil it down to a simple recipe to demonstrate.
That being said, I think the issue would be whether the merge command
you run includes the revision when the files were added. In other
words, as long as the merge includes the add, it will add the file to
the WC. If your merge range only included revs where you changed the
new files, then it would try to apply that change to the WC, not find
the file, and issue that message.
A transcript would let us see the revision where you committed the add,
as well as the merge command you specified.
