When you create the branch, Subversion now sees a new directory.
By updating the WC file to HEAD, you are updating the version to the
latest version that the branch has. If you want to use the latest
version from trunk, you should del the branch version and cp from trunk
to the branch. Doing a merge from trunk to the branch would work as well.

Hope this helps.
