I just can't understand why users think it is intuitive to NOT click on the branch point but to click on one release before it to in turn get the value that they would have gotten if they just click directly on it...?! Sorry, that logic is too far away from beeing logical... But let's stop that thread now. You want to have it that way, okay, so I have to click on the release above that release that is actually passed to svn then in future... ("It's not a bug, it's an unlogical feature.").

This was all hashed over very thoroughly on the TortoiseSVN mailing list.

It is not inconsistent with the command line. The dialog passes through
the values shown in the dialog, exactly as they are entered. If you enter
21:HEAD that is what is passed. The only difference is that in the
"revision picker" (which the CLI does not have) we take your choices and
convert them to the proper value you would need to enter to get those
revisions. It is fine that you do not think it is intuitive. Plenty of
command line users find the N-1 syntax non-intuitive as well. You'll
