This happens even if you do not do a build. There is a class library in one branch but not the other mixed with unversioned files that I can do nothing about.

Okay, this isn't a svn issue. This sounds more like a "I did a build against trunk, switched to branch B, and then did a build of B in a dirty workspace." That's just asking for trouble in terms of build accuracy and build repeatability; it's a bad practice in general.
The whole "trunk, switch to B, switch back to trunk" directory conflict may be an annoyance, but a 'make clean' build option or cleanup script run after the switch sounds like something that you need to implement.
