You can't. If you read the manual more carefully you will see that we
advise against updating to an older revision except for the sole purpose
of seeing what it looked like in the past.

It seems that what you want is to undo the changes made in r21.

Show log for the highest level that r21 touched, or the project root.
Select the consecutive revisions that you want to undo.
Select 'Revert changes from these revisions' from the context menu.
Check the results, then commit r22.
