There is no 'modified property'. But since "revert to this revision"
does a reverse merge, what you see is that Subversion adds a lot of
svn:mergeinfo properties on your files.
If you want, you can remove those properties. If you leave them, the
next merge will be faster.

TortoiseSVN does not assign the modified property, the subversion
library does. Check that there is no change to line endings or white
space. In TortoiseMerge settings, make sure you are not ignoring line
endings or whitespace and try the diff again.

Message Hello,

When I choose 'revert to this revision' in the 'show log' window, many more files than were reverted (all but one) are marked as modified in the windows explorer. When I view the differences, the diff viewer does not show any differences.
When committing this state all these files are committed, although they have not actually changed.

This seems to happen only in projects with sub-folders and when a file in a sub-folder has changed. Tortoise seems to mess up when assigning the 'modified' property.

Anyone out there who can reproduce this?
