Lesson learned the hard way...

If you're going to make a branch into /tmp, it is STRONGLY ADVISED to
cp an ***UNMODIFIED /trunk*** (i.e., do not have any local edits on the
/trunk that you're copying). Then make/apply all your changes in a new
checkout of your /tmp tree and go from there.

This will make it SIGNIFICANTLY easier to merge your /tmp branch back
into the trunk when you're done.

Just FYI.
