The message you cite actually comes out of Subversion itself and they are
asking you to report the problem to them. Obviously this is difficult
when you are using a GUI as a reproduction recipe is less obvious. That
error message is a general bail out error message that they use and what
they potentially want to do is identify the situation better so they can
provide you with a more meaningful error message.

>From experience, I am pretty sure I know what the problem is. The
WEB-INF\classes folder is "versioned" and in your repository. The problem
is that when Eclipse does a build it will delete that folder (and the .svn
meta-data contained within that folder) creating this situation.

You should delete the classes folder from your repository. Then do an
update. Then, when Eclipse recreates the folder, add it to the svn:ignore
property of the WEB-INF folder and commit that.
