Switch will only update the *difference* between your trunk and branch,
so this will only become a problem if you branch becomes very different
from the trunk (or vice versa). If it does become a problem though,
simply keep two working copies on your disk. One tracks the trunk, the
other tracks your branch.

Forgive me if this is a dumb question to you, but after reading your
message again, it isn't clear how you are switching. To confirm, you
are switching
from MyProject/Trunk to MyProject/Branches/RicksBranch, not
from MyProject/Trunk to MyProject/Branches, right?
