No problem, I've been there myself. ;)

I tried out the merge command and you're right, it doesn't get the paths 
right the way I specified it. If you do the following it should work 

cd qpid/java
svn merge -r561364:561365 .

The original form I gave you tries to apply the delta to the wrong level 
of the tree. If this version doesn't work for you, please let me know.
