To go back to the old revision you have to notice that the copy became
a replace, and since it would happened silently it's easy to miss. I
have no direct experince in this particular case, but in general I
find it "painful" when things misbehave silently. I'm more inclined
to add a check to prevent the directory/dav replace then to enable
file replacement.
