TortoiseSVN updates all selected items to the same revision, but ONLY if
 all repository uuids are the same.
TSVN does this to avoid a race condition: if it would update all to HEAD
and they're all from the same repository, they could end up with
different revisions if someone else does a commit between updating e.g.,
* update folder1 to HEAD (100)
* user2 commits to repository
* update folder2 to HEAD (101)

If TortoiseSVN updates all your selected items to the HEAD revision of
the first selected item but those items are not from the same
repository, then your repositories are set up wrong: they all have the
same uuid which is NOT what they should have!
(it's called an uuid for a reason).

Please fix your repositories so that all have a real uuid (a UNIQUE id).
