[issue1458] Pull with "--rebase" flag doesn't imply "--update"

New submission from Wladimir Palant <trev at adblockplus.org>:

http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/RebaseProject states:

"[hg pull --rebase] pulls and rebases the local revisions if there's something
to rebase. Otherwise it behaves like hg pull --update."

Unfortunately, that's not true. If there is nothing to rebase, version
1.1.1+20081229 on Windows simply states "nothing to rebase" but doesn't update
the repository. Specifying the "--update" flag in addition doesn't work either,
this one isn't compatible with the rebase operation.
