I recall having a rotom-w trick a scarf onto my already scarfed thundurus-t that I switched in, only for him to use hydro pump on the next turn.
Can't get on to test, but I'm pretty sure that's how it went.
That's how trick usually works - when it picks up a choice item, you're allowed to choose a new move afterward. (Note: only in gen V)

The two times this has happened, my opponent has made his move pretty quickly, so I can't exactly remember if the second switch is able to be cancelled. Still annoying, though.
This has happened to me too - it's a result of the opponent's choice reaching the server before your cancel; the server then calculates the results of the round, then your cancel and second switch reaches it and it assumes that the second switch is for the next round. Don't know how to help you, though
