Help me convince admin to upgrade TortoiseSVN!

Our standard desktop build comes with Tortoise SVN 1.4, and I belive our subversion servers are running subversion 1.4.x as well.
Until recently, our admins didn't care if we upgraded to the latest version, so we had some using Tortoise 1.4.x, some on 1.5.x. Recently there was a commit issue where developer A (using 1.5.x) was committing changes on an older revision (say rev 10), and developer B's (using 1.4.x) changes (done in rev 12) were being overwritten. The admins and developers in question are attributing this "bug" to the fact of having different tortoise clients on their machines.
Now, i'm not trying to pull a CSI here and figure out what went wrong - we managed to correctly merge all the changes together. I'm of the mind that there was something else at play here besides just having differing clients, and without having seen the problem firsthand, it's going to be impossible for me to figure that out.
BUT now our admins are telling us all to revert back to Tortoise 1.4.x in order to prevent any more of these "conflicts".
First of all, can somebody confirm to me that there is no issues with different developers using different version clients (1.4.x and 1.5.x) with an older subversion server (1.4.x)?
Secondly, what could I tell my admins in order for them to allow us to upgrade to the latest version, 1.6.0?
