Just like it says in the manual:  For files that have not been modified
on the trunk, the newly-imported revision becomes the head revision
immediately.  For files that have been modified on the trunk, the
locally-modified revision stays the head revision and you have to
perform a merge to get the changes from the newly-imported revision.

It certainly would be nice if it worked that way, but it doesn't.
