Nope, someone else in the project did. Right after I branched from trunk:

    cd into branches/someplace
    svn co branchURL
    cd branch name

now to check the strange behavior:

    svn merge --dry-run ^/trunk

confirm the mysterious r2 to r2909 appearing, with tree conflicts etc.
(they are really old).

   svn log

on the other side shows all the history down to r1.

Then

    svn merge -r2:2909 ^/trunk --record-only

Just returns a prompt, silently, and if we try again

    svn merge --dry-run ^/trunk

that still tries to merge r2 to r2909.
