No, that is not really the issue. Branches do not have their own revision
numbers, when a commit is done anywhere, the entire repository has its
revision updated. So your branch has a "state" at every possible revision
number, it is just that at many of those revisions there are no
differences. In other words, if revision 100 is the last commit to your
branch, but the current HEAD of the repository is revision 110, then
updating the branch to r100 and HEAD results in the same output. Although
the latter option is better because then the folders are all updated to
HEAD (r110) which is necessary for a prop-change or delete to be performed.

The issue is that updating to HEAD is the easiest thing to do, but it does
have a potentially negative side effect that if commits have been done to
your project since you opened the Synch view, then updating to HEAD is
going to include those commits even though they did not appear in the Synch
view.
