I'd say this is a pilot error. You made a mistake when selecting source and
target of your branch or when checking oput your working copy so that you
are branching from the wrong location. I don't know how you create your
branches, but I recommend that you read
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook-1.0/ch04.html and
http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/docs/TortoiseSVN_en/ch04s14.html, to
understand how branching works.

No and no, you have to understand what you are doing though.

Which is nine too many. If I create a branch/tag from/to the "right"
location, I get just one log line which reads "branch/tag created".

Please try again after reading the docs :-) And if the TortoiseSVN docs are
wrong/misleading, my apologies, please tell me what got you off course and
I'll fix it.
