What is the reason you want to update your workspace to a particular
revision without it affecting the repository or switching to it?
Perhaps it is to do a build?
Your options are:
1. "rollback" to revision, which is a reverse merge from HEAD to the
desired revision. This makes your Trunk HEAD match the tag, which is NOT
what you porport to desire.
2. (using TSVN) "revert to revision" by right-clicking on the revision
while in the log and chosing the option. This pulls that revision down
to your workspace w/o affecting the repository until you commit.
I'm sure there is at least one other way to get the desired result.
Item 2 looks like what you seek, and you can later "update" to get the
HEAD and continue like normal. Personally, if I wanted to get the tag,
I'd just switch to the TAG, do my build or whatever, then switch back to
trunk, which is essentially the equivalent of option #2, but much

		Is it possible to update (not to switch or merge) to the
same revision

	The only way to update the trunk_wc is to update the files in
the trunk in the repository. This can be achieved only using copying
files to trunk or merging to trunk. 
	In this particular case though, you created the tag using the
trunk_wc. So, updating the trunk_wc using the tag (even if
hypothetically it was possible) would yield the same set of files, isn't
