Those are the revisions those folders were last changed (i.e. the 'last
committed revision').

That's what you asked for.

No, you ended up with revision 76 as the dialog told you. You just
didn't change branches/test123 in revision 76 so it is the same as
revision 75.

You don't get an error because in revision 76 the URL existed - it just
didn't change in that revision.
