TSVN does that merge like
svn merge -r2:1 file:///C:/myrepo/trunk/mergme.txt
which means (since its the log dialog and it doesn't know that the file
you've selected for reverting still exists in the working copy (yes, it
*could* know, but that very complicated and requires an analysis of the
whole logs up to that revision).

Here, Subversion uses the working copy as the peg revision, so the merge

But you can use the TSVN merge dialog which will work if you use the
working copy paths there too.
