I can't reproduce this. What does the 'Check for Modifications' dialog
tell you about the working copy before you try to create the branch?

Personally I avoid branching from WC. You can simply branch from the
last commit revision of your WC (probably HEAD) and switch to that
branch. Switch keeps your local modifications, and you can commit
those separately.
