Re: [Subclipse-users] help with subclipse error message in the eclipse console

Sorry, more details.

The path is correct, case and everything. I have tried many times
to change the workspace, using the "Browse..." button, etc.

I don't know why the path is referring to the .metadata directory;
it is _not_ under subversion control.

Note that _every_ project that is under subversion control appears
fine (when eclipse isn't wedged, anyway), and I can do things like
synchronize with the repository.

I have tried deleting the .metadata directory and having eclipse
create a new one. No help.

I have tried reloading all the projects into eclipse (deleting the
.metadata directory tends to encourage that). No help either.

And I am using JavaSVN, and have been all along.

Nothing in the FAQ appeared to apply, and I should have said so.
