1. Sync to revision #25 of that file.
2. Open it for edit. DO NOT UPDATE when it asks, since you want the  
workspace version to be #25.

Now, the trick:
3. Try to sync to rev #26 - it's still open for edit, which is what  
we want. It will complain.
4. Run "resolve" now. Keep in mind, the workspace contents are #25  
("yours") and what  you want to eventually check in as a new revision.
     So, select  "accept yours" (accept the workspace copy).
5. Run "diff" and "p4 diff" and make sure that your workspace copy is  
what you want - fixed and finished.

6. Submit the change.

(Note that this rewrites a new head revision with "the right  
contents", instead of just removing an erroneous check-in by deleting  
database records.)
