My guess is that Checkout creates a Working Copy, and Copy to Working
Copy modifies an existing Working Copy by copying from the repo into the
Working Copy. So after doing the Copy, you would actually have a change
to commit. Presumably the Copy option lets you copy from anywhere in
the repo, so you could be working on the trunk and copy a folder from a
branch into your trunk Working Copy, and then commit it.

If all you are trying to do is to sync up with the repo, then after
doing the original checkout, use svn update or svn switch.
