I think the easiest solution for you is to just export or checkout the version you want into a new directory. Don't bother with reverting.

If you *must* use the working copy for this, then I think what you want to do instead is to merge up to that revision, instead of reverting to it.

For example, if your HEAD is r1000, and you initially reverted to r500, if you now want r750, you would merge all the changes from r501:r750 into your working copy.

IMNECTHO though, It's going to be far easier to just check out the version you want to examine, in a sort of binary search algorithm, test it, and throw it away when you are done. When a version exhibits the problem, and the next version doesn't, you've found the problem revision.
