COMMITTED is *not* the most recent committed revision on the server,
it is the last change at or before the BASE revision in the working
copy. What you see is a consequence of Subversions mixed revision
policy, the COMMITTED value is not out of date, it still has the
correct value given the base revision of the directory.

 The real issue is that '-r COMMITTED' isn't really meaningful for
 directories.

 Frankly, I think we should either error when it is used with a
 directory, or treat it like HEAD. Thoughts?

I think the current behaviour is correct.
