Multiple users modifying the same file from the Repo Browser

I know the new functionality in the repo browser that will allow a
user to modify a file directly will get used very heavily in our

One scenario that I can see happening is that more that one user would
be modifying the same file. If two users are editing the same file,
the first person will be able to commit their changes with no issues.
When the second user attempts to commit their changes, it fails with
the following error dialog:

Command: Commit
Modified: C:\Tmp\trunk.svn003.tmp\Correct_Name.txt
Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: File or directory 'Correct_Name.txt' is out of date; try
Error: resource out of date; try updating

When the user clicks OK on the dialog box, and second dialog is
displayed and tells the user they should try updating because the
resource is out of date. It asks if TortoiseSVN should try updating
the working copy and then retry. When the update button is clicked,
all dialogs disappear and the users changes are lost and no commit is
ever made.

What is the expected behavior for this scenario?
