Greetings, Jason Kraftcheck!

JK> A user just checked in a change set that resulted in the following:
JK> A file was removed
JK> An identical file was added
JK> An automated email message included the following:
JK> Property changes on: MOAB/trunk/tools/dagmc/Makefile.am
JK> ___________________________________________________________________
JK> Name: svn:mergeinfo
JK> +

JK> I now cannot access the history of the file before that version. For example:

JK> svn copy --revision 2785 \
JK> https://svn.mcs.anl.gov/repos/ITAPS/MOAB/trunk/tools/dagmc/Makefile.am .
JK> svn: Unable to find repository location for
JK> 'https://svn.mcs.anl.gov/repos/ITAPS/MOAB/trunk/tools/dagmc/Makefile.am' in
JK> revision 2785

JK> The user claims they did nothing out of the ordinary. What happened? How
JK> can I restore the history for the file?

I'm pretty sure it is possible. Most notable, i'm receiving the same error
messages as you, but I still can access old file by other commands.
It apperas you are using wrong format to the command.
Have you tried
svn up --force -r2785 Makefile.am
from your working copy?
What svn log telling you about changes made to that file?

svn del Makefile.am
svn copy https://svn.mcs.anl.gov/repos/ITAPS/MOAB/trunk/tools/dagmc/Makefile.am@2785 .
