[TSVN] "Update to Revision" doesn't count as a modification

This may well be the intended behaviour, but if it is, I have no idea what
"Update to Revision" is actually for...

Start with a fully updated working copy.

Find a file whose last revision was by someone you don't like, right click
and select "Update to revision...".

Enter the revision before the last time it was changed and click OK.

Check the file. The last revision changes have been undone BUT the file
is shown as unchanged. A commit also does not see the change so it cannot
be committed.

Run update on the (supposedly up-to-date) working copy. The file is
brought back up to HEAD (the change is re-done).

I am using "TortoiseSVN 1.1.3, Build 2502, UNICODE"

I realise that this isn't how you are supposed to "back out" changes but
it still looks like very bizarre behaviour to me.
