Perhaps you're just using different terminology than I would, but
just to be clear: changing a file in trunk will not change it in the
branches or tags to which it was previously copied. Files in the
repository don't change until you change them. If you make a copy of
a file, then you have a second autonomous copy.

$ svn log --stop-on-copy -v foo

If foo is a copy of something else, the last log entry should tell
you what it's a copy of.
