Did it say that specific files were updated, or just that you were now
are rev 1101?

When you checked out the branch, you told SVN that you wanted the
branch URL as it looked in revision 1000. You shouldn't have done this
- your branch URL is a copy of the trunk at whatever point in time you
told it to make the branch (if you said to copy trunk at rev 1000 to
the branch, then the branch is the contents of trunk at revision

I suspect you'll need to re-create your branch using a peg revision,
then check it out again.
