Not surprisingly, that produces the same error. Note that "bzr help
revisionspec" says:

    Alternately, [the revision] can be given without a keyword, in which
    case it will be checked as a revision number, a tag, a revision id,
    a date specification, or a branch specification, in that order.

What would you recommend as an alternative to "svn up -r<revision>"?

I think so. After running "bzr up -r 108549" (the master revision that
contains a merge of emacs-24.1), the --tree option was needed to show
that version. Without --tree, the version for the head of the trunk was

    $ bzr revno --tree
    $ bzr revno
