Well, I'm one of those who have a vital interest in a working
subclipse and I'd like to help.

I've attached a small patch which allows to run the tests
sucessfully on Linux.

Just three changes:

- Use property location to create an absolute path and then put
  "file:///" in front of it.
- Use the command line client instead of javahl
- Fix the keyword test (ignore the authors name since that depends
  on the user who runs the tests).

I'm wondering if you should drop the support for javahl, (at least for now):

1. It's not a stable/really supported interface.
2. You must create the dll for every platform (linux, windows, mac, solaris,
   HP-UX, AIX, etc. etc.)
3. The dll is very tightly integrated into the executable while the
   commandline version doesn't have to be updated for every version
   of subversion.
