The previous behavior was misleading you, there was no code to actually do
what needs to be done and the Subversion API's do not currently lend
themselves to this behavior. So in 0.9.33 I fixed this by correcting the
UI to not give the impression that we were going to do something that we
are not actually doing.

These are the manual steps that you need to do to achieve what you want.

1) Copy project files to a safe location.
2) Delete project in Eclipse
3) Checkout project from repository
4) Copy saved files on top of checkout

Someone is working on a workaround to essentially do these steps for you
in Java code. We also hope that Subversion is going to enhance it's
checkout command in 1.3 to support checking out into an existing
folder/file structure.
