I've seen this here, too. It seems to be related to a user creating a
branch with the OS tools without telling SVN about it, then adding it to
SVN, then porting over changes by hand, then trying to merge in more
changes...

To create a branch, I've learned to always do an svn copy between URLs,
e.g. svn cp file:///repository/trunk file:///repository/branches/mybranch.

Cheers,

Ulli
