That's sounds like its either a bug of some sort. My first guess would
be that its a caching layer somewhere that doesn't get busted till you
change the URL because I don't think anything in the view system
actually uses the revs query string parameter.

Hard to say without more knowledge on what sort of caching
intermediaries you have setup whether that's internal or external to
couch (if it is indeed caching).
