I've only given this a little thought, but...
Rather than a bug, this seems normal svn usage to me. If you had one
type of file, then you replaced it with a different type of file (but
same name), isn't that just something you should not do unless you
`svn delete` the first one first?

In fact, you say you replaced the file, edited it, then reverted it.
Isn't 'revert' supposed to revert it back to what it was on the last
