After examining e:\repository\module\.bzr I found 'bound' file there
which was pointing to branch created from lightweight checkout using
next sequence of commands:

co --lightweight \\host\repository\module 'somewhere on disk D'
cd 'somewhere on disk D'
branch module2

plus there are some records in e:\repository\module\
(e:\repository\module\module2) related to this branch.

Doing 'branch module2' I expected to get local branch which won't be put
in shared repository. Is not that correct?

After some e:\repository\module\.bzr editing commit works as it should.

(P.S. I'm not 100% sure about all commands I typed to create this branch
nor all arguments - it was some time)

'bzr: ERROR: [Errno 22] Invalid argument' still exists.
