Well, it may not help you at the moment, but I'd suggest you re-think
about how you organize your stuff. If you've four projects which share
some code, you'd better work with modules. Branches are not for different projects, but for different versions of the same project. Of course, you can abuse branches the way you do, but that puts you sooner or later into trouble, as you came into.
Re-read the manual on branches and modules and some cvs-philosophical stuff
