test.txt is not Added. It's Unknown. Had you actually added that file,
its status would show A.

If you can't give an exact reproduction recipe, the developers can't
research the "bug". "Full reproduction recipe" includes telling us
what version of TSVN you're using, and your OS.

 Revert should be done by the Subversion libraries, meaning that if
this were a true bug, it would have been seen/found by someone by now
and fixed.
