Yes, this is a common scenario. We do this all the time.

Incorrect. You need to "port" the bugfix changes to the branch.

I certainly don't mean to offend, but have you RTFM'd chapter 4, the
whole chapter on merging? It discusses this scenario in detail.

TortoiseSVN is a nice GUI, but clicking on a "merge" menu item isn't
going to help if you don't understand Subversion merging concepts.
It's not just about copying files from one place to another. That may
work in CVS, but things are different in SVN.
