Ok, thanks for all the feedback.
I'd already tried the -clean option, and that is making no difference.
To be fair, I 'bumped' because I assumed that I'd not provided enough
detail in the original, so the bump did ask if there was anything I
could do (myself) to try to establish the cause of this problem. I'm not
sure what else I can offer. I only have the eclipse log file and my
observations as to what happened. I was hoping someone with some
detailed subclipse knowledge could provide me with info on how to make
more detailed information available.
Note also, that the problem does not go away. I now have 2 workspaces,
both of which have Imported the same set of projects, both of which
(seem to have) the same project settings. One works (created workspace,
imported projects), one does not (this workspace was my 'current'
workspace when I upgraded subclipse).
Other workspaces I have seem to be fine (although I only ever really do
serious dev in the one main workspace, any others only contain small
test/eval type code).
I'm running eclipse 3.1.1 on XP
However, in the grand scheme of things, I can get back up and running
within an hour (really large project, new workspace == complete rebuild
of all source + re-setting all my build Variables == complete rebuild
again). I can live with that. If no-one else (or at most a really small
group) is experiencing this, then it's just something I'm going to
assume is local to my machine/environment/projects and I'll deal with
I can also get some of the other devs here to upgrade from .34 and see
if it's generic in 'what we do here' or just local to me.
If I can deduce anything else that might be interesting, I'll forward it

Subject: Re: Upgrading loses svn decorators
FWIW, I haven't run into any problems using XP or OS X, and I've been
plugin versions around like crazy. I religiously start eclipse with
the -clean option*,
and have noticed that cleaning my projects as well helps eclipse when
weird things going on. Maybe it's rebuilding of the workspace that

Gary has provide much in the way of troubleshooting info. Sorry if
Gary, I know you've sent a couple through, but in my mind they said
thing and were short on detail besides the timeout error.
What speed is your computer? XP, 2000, 98? Do you religiously start
-clean*? Tried cleaning your projects? Any other plugins get wonky?
Usually if I "bump" a message I try to get a little more info into
the bump. Just
in case, you know? Makes it so people don't have to guess so much.
And it helps later on when someone else thinks, hey, maybe I have the
problem. They will know if it's the same or different.
From the "losing decorators" there is a long way to go. :-)
*when I say religiously, I mean at the least; whenever adding/moving/
eclipse plugins or components, or even configuring eclipse for that
Well, this got longer than intended. If I only knew the right
question, I'd know
the answer. Oh well. Good luck and happy days, esse!
-ps I've got about 10 or so projects linked to SVN. Sometimes it does
a while, but generally those decorations (and the repo paths/
to the file in the navigator) appear after a bit. Never have they
requiring me to make a new workspace or anything. Although, I did have a
program or something run rampant through my workspace, deleting every
thing except for a /bin folder. That was strange. Maybe one of your
is doing something to your workspace? Far fetched, but what the hey.
