That revision you see in the properties dialog is the last committed
revision of that file or folder. It is *not* the revision your working
copy is on. To determine that revision, you have to check that revision
of every file and folder in your working copy - and that can really take
some time if you have a big working copy. (Also, that's what our
SubWCRev tool is for).

If you want to create a branch/tag from a specific revision, use the log
dialog and just select the revision you want - or use the repository
