svn marks files as modified after creating a branch

Another surprising behavior of SVN. After I have created a branch in
my working copy, svn stat shows files as modified even though they are

    $ svn co http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/socketcan
    A socketcan/trunk
    A socketcan/trunk/can-utils
    A socketcan/trunk/can-utils/terminal.h
    A socketcan/trunk/etc/llcf
    A socketcan/branches
    A socketcan/tags
    Checked out revision 40.
    $ cd socketcan/
    $ svn mkdir branches/ut
    A branches/ut
    $ svn cp trunk branches/ut/hlist
    A branches/ut/hlist
    $ svn stat
    A branches/ut
    A + branches/ut/hlist
    M + branches/ut/hlist/kernel/2.6/drivers/net/can/mscan/mscan.c
    M + branches/ut/hlist/kernel/2.6/drivers/net/can/mscan/mscan.h
    M + branches/ut/hlist/kernel/2.6/drivers/net/can/mscan/mpc52xx_can.c

What is happening here? What do the three M lines mean? I haven't
modified these files. BTW, the repository is public, so you could try
to reproduce this.
