Since you will never have merge conflicts, why don't you drop the drop
dir and recreate it, instead of messing with a merge?
        svn rm .../drop
        svn mkdir drop
        svn copy trunk/some/where drop
or keep the dir and delete the contents
        for /f %i in ('svn ls -N .../drop' do @svn rm %i
        svn copy ...

        Install cygwin (www.cygwin.org) if you need a bash shell and gnu
utils on a windows box. Or use Perl.
