Without that, do not expect the file to be reverted.
I ran "svn revert ." but you are correct, this does nothing to my file.
But I ran "svn revert -R ." and "svn revert *" and the same behavior 
I tells me "Item reverted" then immediately comes back as modified in 
svn status. I even went as far as running them in sequence like that:

svn rever * & svn status

I get this output:

'TheFile.bak' reset
M       TheFile.bak

svn diff is unable to show the difference, it shows this:

Index: TheFile.bak
Unable to display : file considered as binary.
svn:mime-type = application/octet-stream

As to WinMerge, it is configured to take all differences it knows about 
into account and still tells me that there are no differences.
