There is an issue for this in the issue tracker. Unfortunately, I do not
think there will be any way to do what you ultimately want to do. There
are two changes I want to make:

1) When disconnecting a project, I think the dialog needs to make it
REALLY clear that if you delete the SVN meta information you will not be
able to share the project back to the repository.

2) When doing Team -> Share it currently allows you to specify an
existing folder and then pretends that it is going to allow you to use
Synchronize to share it again. I think this was all code copied over from
the CVS plugin. The reality is that due to the Subversion working copy
restrictions I cannot envision any way that could be made to actually
work. So the Team -> Share process needs to stop you at the point that
you are trying to share to an existing folder.

All you can do is checkout your project again. If you have local changes,
copy then somewhere and then copy them back after you checkout again.
