The biggest hint is that "checkout" doesn't quite mean what you think it means.
To get the branch with the full history, do:
bzr branch <url>
If you want just a working tree, but set up so that commits get sent
over the wire to the branch (ala svn), do:
bzr checkout --lightweight <url>
There are some other things you should be aware of (like creating a
local shared repository).
To get the import disabled, ask a question on Launchpad Bazaar.
