You're branching individual files, rather than the whole directory. So
now you have a directory that has some files in the branch, and some
on the trunk. When you do the "update" in the existing sandbox, you
greatly confuse CVS. When you do the checkout, you only get the files
that are actually tagged with the branch tag, and thus the other files
are "removed".

Basically, the answer is "don't do that". Branch the whole module.      
Modify the files you need to modify, and don't worry about the others.
