Adam, I have seen the warning you mention about uncommitted changes when 
switching between branches.
But I have also been able to switch between branches without committing 
unsaved changes.*
I did not use any switches that would force the switch to another branch 
nor do I have a handle on this.

* I had to go review my notes (I do make notes), to find the branch that 
owned the source file that was changed so as to make sure that the 
commit would be made to the correct branch.

Thanks
John Johnson
