What I would prefer is a warning when the user clicked on the Update
action in the Synchronize view with an older revision:

You're about to update to revision X, but there is a newer version Y in
the repository. You might want to synchronize with the repository first
to use the latest version.
Buttons: Update anyways, Synchronize, Cancel

I don't like that fact that it simply says "Update" in the context menu,
but it doesn't tell you the revision, or that it might be something
different than HEAD. AFAIK you can't change the menu entry dynamically,
and context menu items don't have tooltips, so I believe a dialog is the
best option.
