Another Merge Question.

Hi Everyone,
I'm obviously not getting it... because merging just isn't working for

I have a file;

it is @r9258

I have a release branch for the same project and thus have

it is @r8192

There have been several previous updates to the file but only the
changes from 9253:9258 are approved to go to production.

I ran the following command;
svn merge -r 9252:9258 project1/trunk/myDirectory/fileName.txt

But the results I got were not what I expected.
I had assumed that I would get all changes made in r9253 through to
r9258 applied to the file in the release branch - but ONLY the changes
made in those revisions.

But the release file included all changes made prior to r9253 as well.
Now, indeed the state of the file @9253 does contain about a dozen
extra commits/changes that were made since the file was committed to
the release branch @r8192.
But I don't care about any changes that occurred to the trunk/....
between 8192 and 9252

I'm sure it should be an easy enough task - but I am simply not having
that light-bulb moment.
Could someone please point me in the right direction?

(Oh BTW I am using the command line. - or at least trying to!)
Thanks - Gavin.
