unable to update/revert after reverting back to an earlier revision

I've encountered a problem using TSVN 3840. Most probably because I don't
fully understand reverts yet. Here is the most simple example to recreate my
problem (revisions shown in brackets).

create a fresh repository and checked it out to an empty directory

(1) create a file: notes.txt with some random text, add it and commit
(2) delete notes.txt and commit
(3) create a file: notes.txt with some random but different text, add it and

now i decided i wanted to revert back to revision 1 with the original file,
so i brougt up the log and selected revisions 2 and 3 and clicked "revert
changes from these revisions". This successfully restored notes.txt to what
it was in revision 1.

However, now i can't do anything to the working copy. If i try to commit I
get the "out of date / update working copy first message." If I follow that
advice and try to update i get the error "working copy path 'notes.txt' does
not exist in repository". If I select revert, it will clear the modified
icon on the file, but I am still unable to commit or update my working copy.

How do I get out of this state?

(Incidentally, the issue track lists
http://tortoisesvn.berlios.de/issues/?do=details&id=220 as being implemented
in 5803 but under 5840 I can not find the "revert to this revision" menu
item in the log browser)
