# "binmode" / "textmode" is cygwin's mount option which is to be known
# for explaining line-ending of baz created by the shell script.

I've used the word 'reasonable' as 'known behaviour of current hg'.

So, I guess your problem is: "Why hg revert updates dirstate?".
And one of current workaround is provided in issue 374; "hg update -C".

If you think this issue as bug, please reopen issue 374 with describing
your problem.
