I understand that a same version of a file exists in several revisions.
But even if I check out some revision, I do not expect the $Rev$ keyword
to always be that revision. I want it to be the *first* revision for
which this version of the file exists, a bit like the behavior of the
$Date$ keyword (one gets the date of the first revision containing this
version of the file, even if one checks out a later revision).

I think that this corresponds to the bug mentioned by Ben.
