[Subclipse-users] Multiple moves corrupt WC - known?

This is not a bug report, because it's way too vague to be a bug report.
  It's a pre-bug report.

I was creating a Rails plugin yesterday, and I had to move a bunch of
files and folders around a few times, all within Eclipse. At some
point, the WC became corrupted beyond cleanup's ability to fix things
(either Subclipse or command line); there were locked .svn/entries files
with a setguid bit set. I eventually had to manually copy all the
source files to a newly created directory, and sudo rm -rf the old stuff.

This is with Subclipse 1.2.4 against a 1.4.4 server.

I seem to remember that (a) this is known, and caused by moves not being
atomic, and that (b) 1.5 improves things somewhat.

If that's *not* the case, let me know and I'll find a failure recipe...

Jay
