You get what you ask for. If you ask for /path/to/project and that
contains directories for trunk, braches and tags (or any other
directories), then you'll get trunk, branches and tags (and any other
directories). That's probably not what you want. (Imagine how long it
would take and how much disk space it would use if you had 10
branches and 100 tags.) You probably only want the trunk, or a
particular branch. So ask for that. Check out /path/to/project/trunk
or /path/to/project/branches/the-branch.

I cannot explain your statement that the behavior is different
locally than remotely. It isn't.
