Definitely not intentional.

If you think about the differences of revert and commit, you'll find
out why this happens:

When you revert, the files themselves get changed, so explorer
discovers that and updates the overlays.
When you commit, the files don't get touched but only the .base files
inside the .svn dir get changed. Explorer ignores those changes
(because 1) the .svn folder is marked hidden and 2) you're most likely
not inside that folder with explorer).
