Happily, I think I can.

The problem occurs because you are specifying the 'jaxb-2.0.3'
directory on the command line, which as you say does not exist in the
given revision. Even if it did, the command you are giving isn't
quite right, because it would merge the contents of the changes of
that directory into the current directory, which is 'lib' (in other
words, things would be displaced up one directory).

Try instead just using the corresponding source as your current
directory; that is, something like (from the 'lib' directory):

svn merge -r 12044:17051 http://svn/tJunction/trunk/thirdparty/lib

That should retrieve the directory creation as well as other changes
to the 'lib' directory and other subdirectories. Are you trying to
avoid pulling in such changes other than the directory creation?

Thank you,
