Bug Description

When using a feature branches model with Bazaar Explorer, the submit pane is not shown. This appears to be due to a couple of factors:

1. The parent branch is not set correctly when doing "switch -b" (Bug 513709 in Bazaar project.)

2. There is a apparently an issue with merges:

view_workingtree.py:

        # Display the delta versus the submit branch iff one is
        # defined and it's local. Unfortunately though, merging a feature
        # branch into trunk sets the merged-from branch as the submit
        # branch which means we see a "silly" submit delta panel for trunk.
        # To work around that, we don't show the panel for bound branches
        # as trunk ought to be bound. We could look for the name
        # "trunk" instead but that sounds even more of a hack. :-(

As a result they've been turned off in Bazaar Explorer.

This limits the ability to use feature branches effectively with bound branches in Bazaar Explorer.
