I do not think this is necessarily a bug. What happens in Subclipse is it
looks at the Project folder from your workspace, and runs a Subversion API
to retrieve the status. If Subversion tells us the item is not versioned,
then we go through the wizard to create a new project in Subversion. If
it returns SVN info, then we let you hook it back up. It sounds like if
that folder is a symlink to another folder, the API is not returning that
info to us. We are not doing any fancy logic here, we are just asking
Subversion if that folder is versioned.

Is there any reason you need to use Symlinks for this. Eclipse has the
ability to just work with projects in a different location and this all
works fine with Subclipse. Just do Import -> Existing Project into
Workspace, then point it at your project. Eclipse will then allow you to
work with that project as if it were in your workspace, and when you do
Team -> Share Project it should ask to hook it up automatically.
