merging different repositories

i have a working repository A with a branch A1. i do nightly svndumps (backup). i created a new subversion repository B on another server and replayed the dump (into a new root directory, svnadmin load has that option).

i created a new directory with some files on A1 and tried to merge that to B1 (automatically exists because it's a backup).

i get

svn: The URL '<whatever>' has a different repository root than its parent

my merge command was

cd workingCopyOfB1
svn merge --ignore-ancestry -r revBeforeChangeOnA1:HEAD http://urlToA1

i thought that would work because it can track the changes in branch A1 and just apply them to the working copy. am I wrong?
