Note that the child URLs don't match:
1.6.x: URL: file:///tmp/test/repos/branches/r01/MyProject/MyFolder2/MyFile1.txt
trunk: URL: file:///tmp/test/repos/trunk/MyProject/MyFolder2/MyFile1.txt

I think this is explained by notes/api-errata/wc001.txt:

  In version 1.7, the new working copy format does not have a way to
  store an intended URL that is *different* from the location specified
  or implied by its parent. In this case, the child's URL is derived
  from the repository location of the original or the newly-switched
  parent directory. When the child's entry is fetched, it will have the
  correct value.

I.e. this part of the problem was a bug and it's been fixed in trunk,
but a backport to 1.6.x is unlikely.
