I agree that that's an annoying bug. Here's a fix.

Add this to your .emacs:

(defun vc-reload-version-info ()
  "Re-read a file's version information after an external edit.

Meant to be added as to `after-revert-hook'."
  (when (vc-backend buffer-file-name)
    (vc-file-setprop buffer-file-name 'vc-workfile-version
                     (vc-call workfile-version buffer-file-name))
    (vc-mode-line buffer-file-name)

(add-hook 'after-revert-hook 'vc-reload-version-info)
