That's not uncommon: you can create a tag/branch from r1 if you like. If
you look at the branch/tag dialog, you see that you can specify the
revision from where the branch/tag should be created.

Also, the branch/tag dialog defaults to the revision your working copy
is on. If you haven't updated before opening that dialog, then you will
create the branch/tag from an earlier revision than HEAD (if you don't
check the HEAD radio button). That's to avoid tagging something you
don't want (you don't want to tag a change you have not in your working
copy and already tested).

P.S. there's no need to create a screenshot: the revision graph window
has a file->save menu where you can save the graph as an image file
(defaults to *.wmf, but you can specify .jpg, .gif, .png, ...)
