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.
