How would you like Subversion to work in your case? From my
understanding it breaks down to something generated some files for
some reason in one of your branches and now you want to switch form
that branch to another which does not contain the base directory of
the generated files. What should subversion do with your generated
files it doesn't know anything about?

I don't see how this problem can be solved by any tool.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
