I'd guess that the working copy is checked out/updated from a later
revision than the restored repository has (i.e. some commits were lost
from the time after the backup was made). I don't think there is a
reasonable recovery technique other than checking out a new working
copy, then copying over the changed/newer files from your old working
copy and committing them.
