Issues with "Check out As..."

I've recently installed subclipse 0.9.24 on Eclipse 3.0.1, Win2k.

A typical scenario for me is that we have a project in source control
that is shared amongst users that use many different IDE's, so we
typically do not check in .project, .classpath and other IDE
proprietary files. Therefore, when checking out a project from source
control, we use "Check out As...", and check it out as a Java, Maven
or EJB project (or whatever natures we want).

This works perfectly fine with CVS since it just checks out the code
from the repository, and Eclipse generates the .project and .classpath
files, and it is immediately reckognized as a valid project with the
expected natures. However, when trying to acomplish the same thing
with Subclipse, it insists on deleting all the contents of the newly
created project before (or after, I'm not sure) checkout.

As a result, the created project does not contain the expected
.project and .classpath files, and the project is practically useless
(unless we hack the files ourself). Is there a way to tell subclipse
(or subversion) to not delete the files from the folder that it is
checked out into?
