I still can't get this to work as I would expect. Here is what I have done:

   1. Performed update on repository, all files are unmodified.
   2. Right clicked on file I wish to roll back and chose:
   TortoiseSVN->Show Log
   3. Right clicked on the revision AFTER the one that I want to be the
   new head revision and chose: "Revert changes from this revision"
   4. Clicked "yes" to the warning prompt
   5. Clicked "OK" to the log dlg
   6. Right clicked on the file I rolled back (which now has a conflicted
   icon) and chose "Commit"
   7. Entered new comment and clicked OK

I then get the error below
Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Aborting commit: 'C:\PMDRepository\IF_Firmware\trunk\UI.c' remains in

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I have read the docs section about
rolling back and followed them. User error or is something else happening?
