I don't recall a branch being required, but you might be right.  I think 
the problem was around having multiple versions and the non-HEAD 
versions getting corrupted by a bad diff algorithm or something like 
that.  A branch (created at a non-HEAD location) would certainly show 
that problem, if this is in fact the problem.
