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 

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.
