Does this happen if you revert from a parent folder of the folder which
causes the problems? Or only if you revert from that folder directly?
If the first, then this could be some problem with some merge tracking code.
The problematic folder, does it have special chars in it? (spaces,
non-ASCII chars, ...)

If you can, yes. That would definitely help.
