There is no way to avoid that.  Your trunk is broken between the time
you do the import and when you merge the import back to the trunk.

To mitigate the problem, you should tag your trunk before you do the
import.  If the post-import merge gives you trouble, you can at least
start a branch off your pre-import tag so you can continue your work
in another sandbox while you sort things out.  When you finally merge
the import, you go on to merge the temporary branch.
