I'm going to leave it to Stefan to comment on this one. I'm not sure if in this case it will work. 4.2 is not an ancestor of 4.2 but they have a common ancestor.
I think in this case you need to merge 4.1 into trunk then merge trunk into 4.1.
This funky stuff is why we went to the repo organization that I mentioned in a previous email in this thread.

I'm not sure if updating the server is going to change anything.
