Hmmm. This looks like a bug in subversion. It happens with the command
line client too.

As an aside, TortoiseMerge hangs with 100% CPU if you try to diff the
file after using this revert method.

Sorry to say the only answer is a fresh checkout.

That's because issue 220 was implemented on trunk, not on the release
branch (which contains only bugfixes). It will be available in 1.4.
