Did you add the file to version control on client 2? If not, this is
expected behaviour since subversion never touches files that are not under
version control. Imagine: The file could be binary and be totally screwed
up by adding conflict markers - and for unversioned files there is no
pristine copy to revert to.

Kind regards
