You should first use the repository browser to look at your repository
and see if this is really true or not. If it is, then you made a
mistake when you made the copy to create the branch. Most likely you
entered the URL incorrectly. That being said, if both your trunk and
branch look the same, it could be that trunk already looked like this.

The next thing is the Switch command. Unfortunately, the Switch
command will do whatever you ask it to. So it is easy to enter the
wrong URL and not get the results you were looking for. That being
said, the Switch command only updates your working copy, it does not
impact your repository at all.
