We added this check precisely because it IS a problem. There are bugs in
the Eclipse code in this area. Subversion will always pass us paths as
the operating systems sees them (in this case D:\..) when we ask Eclipse
to gives us an IResource (or something like that) it fails if the cases do
not match exactly.

So we added this checking into Subclipse to prevent the ensuing problems.

Just follow the instructions in the message to re-open the workspace or
change your shortcut.
