Process Recommendation Request

Has anyone found an effective method of switching between svn branches
when there are unversioned files and/or directories present?

I have an application that, in several locations within the code base,
generates files and directories at runtime. For containment, these
are kept within the install root which means within the working copy
code base. This seems to be causing real problems when switching,
however. Is there a good way to do this?

One note: these files, once generated are not ignored (svn:ignore).
They are simply unversioned. I'm not entirely sure that I understand
all of the ramifications of setting this property (which probably
means I definitely do not), but from what I can tell (and please
correct me if I'm wrong), setting svn:ignore seems to have some impact
on the repository and I'd rather the repository have absolutely no
idea that these files and directories exist.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
