That's odd--I haven't noticed a problem with that.  Maybe I'm
misunderstanding what you're doing, or maybe I'm already tripping on
myself and didn't notice!

I will use a branch for an extended period of time, like you.  I update
from HEAD too, like you.  Then I update HEAD form my branch to deliver
the code, and then continue developing on the branch.

I use 2 sandboxes to manage my merging, like so (I hope this formatting
gets preserved):

Make branch

			work on Fred
			update -jHEAD
			more work on Fred
			update -jHEAD
Update -jb1
			work more on Fred
			update -jHEAD
Update -jb1

I haven't noticed a problem (but I have seen null change updates as you
mentioned).  Granted, not a lot happens on my MAIN outside my DEV branch
at the moment, but that will change once the other devs are delivering
to MAIN as well.  I'm using cvsnt 2.0.8... Did this technology get
slipped in early and I didn't realize?
