Problem with binary files which containing the revision number.

we have a lot of binary files, e. g. word documents, schematics, etc., which are containing the revision number.
If such a file is updated, it won't be possible to estimate the revision which the file really get.
Document A has rev. 10 ... now I lock it, update it and write rev. 11 in the document. Now I commit the document,
but a colleague commits one second before a file to the repository. The problem is that my document
contains inside now the wrong rev. as text.
Is it possible somehow to avoid this? The only chance I see at the moment is to lock the whole repository, but that
is not really a good solution.

Best regards
