Thanks, I had already gone and re-read it. I was thinking you could not
delete a file unless its parent directory was at HEAD. I guess what must
be happening in Subclipse is people are renaming their folders a lot and
running into this. Not uncommon with Java refactorings since the folder
name has meaning in Java. I was thinking it was also happening when
renaming/moving files but now I do not think that is the case.
