Different behaviours when update externals based on the folder or subfolder selected

I would like to report this unexpected behaviour of TortoiseSVN 1.8.5
dealing with external.
I am using the latest version of the software but the error occurs also in
previous versions.

How to reproduce the error:

- In my project I have a folder, let`s call if myextfolder, with externals.
So inside that folder I have different subfolders (lib1,lib2,lib3) each
pointing to the trunk of a library. I use fixed Peg revision number for my
externals, the Operative is left blank.
- Now, one of the folder contains a fixed revision which is not the latest
one (I am pointing to a fixed old revision for one library)

You have two different behaviours if:

- You right click on myextfolder and update or equivalently go inside
myextfolder and right click, update. In this case the correct property is
used and my libX subfolder is updated to the revision I want (a fix old
- You go in myextfolder and select (left click) libX, then right click on
libX and update. In this case the latest trunk for libX is downloaded. So
it is ignoring my property in externals.
- The same happens if you select all the subfolder with ctrl+a and update
them. The latest revision is used instead of the one set in the external

This is probably undesirable and can cause confusion.
I hope the issue is stated clearly enough to be reproducible.

Kind regards,
