Looks a lot like bug 373319, at least the original report of that bug.

As a workaround, you can probably make a new working tree (by eg branching from the last committed revision). If it's true, as that bug suggests, this relates to splitting a directory at the same time as adding directories, that should avoid the problem.

Last commit revision was 1320. I tried

    bzr branch -r 1320 broken broken.2

didn't work but

    bzr branch -r 1319 broken broken.2

did work.
