You are missing a key point. When you use Subversion, you need to allow
Subversion to "own" your working copy. Subversion is not file-based like
CVS, it is tree-based. So it needs full control of the tree. You cannot
use the operating system delete, move, copy, rename etc.. commands within
the WC. You have to use the Subversion commands. There is no way to use
the OS command first, and then "tell" Subversion about it later.

In Eclipse, with Subclipse, we capture all of the Eclipse commands like
copy, delete, move and route then through the Subversion commands for you.

There is no way around this. Subclipse has to live by the rules that are
established by Subversion. Your only option is to either modify or not
use these scripts.
