Incorrect HEAD revision on external screen

This issue is slightly different to the one I posted previously.

On the externals screen, when I use the "Fetch HEAD revision and adjust to it", it works fine if the file is not a rename/copy.
However, if the file is a rename/copy from another branch, then it picks up the revision of the original branch, not of the new branch.
Then we you do an update, it complains that the file didn't exist in that revision.

Sample scenario:
- Trunk\Latest\myfile.txt is on revision 20
- Branch_44\Latest was branched out as revision 30
- Branch_44\Release has relative external to "..\Latest\myfile.txt"

What actually happens:
If I press "Fetch HEAD revision and adjust to it", it will use revision 20 instead of revision 30.
Then when I do SVN update, it says that Branch_44\Release\myfile.txt did exist in revision 20.

If I press "Fetch HEAD revision and adjust to it", it should use revision 30 instead of revision 20.
Then when I do SVN update, Branch_44\Release\myfile.txt is downloaded because it exists in revision 30.
