I am sure that it is not possible.

If a "branch" was created by add or import operations instead of svn copy,
the only way that I know to workaround that is to use the
'--ignore-ancestry' option.

That is my knowledge since svn 1.4, and svn:mergeinfo should not
make much difference here.

It might be a different issue.
