That's really unlikely. I believe that what really happened is that, when you
tried under windows, the branch-name directory already existed, so what "cp"
did was to copy "trunk" within it. Instead, when you ran the command under
linux, you didn't have the branch-name directory yet, so the "cp" command
copied "trunk" under "branches" with the new name "branch-name".
