Re: svn --ignore-externals broken on checkout?

Hi Rupert,

I recently reported a similar issue on the subclipse mailing list.

My externals were showing as "?" in my working copy (within the eclipse IDE).
Yet strangely at the command line, the "X" was being shown.

I tried all manner of things;
restarting eclipse, svn cleanup, svn update...
yet the display issue was still present in my IDE.

My question then is;
Is it a "display issue" or is it a bug?

Do you have a test repo that you might be able to test this out with?
That is;
use svn add / commit - and see whether or not the files are "actually" treated as new files or not.
