Regression bug in 0.9.33

Hello Subclipse community,

until today I was using Subversion with Eclipse 3.0.2 only by means of manual
svn commands. So I am quite new to Subclipse. As SuSE 9.3 came with Subclipse
0.9.32, I wanted to give it a try. So I checked the Subclipse Online Help
inside of Eclipse first.

Then at the command line I created a new repository at the command line and
imported some stuff to have a "playground" for my Subclipse experiments (to
be save not to do any harm to my actual production SVN repository). The
repository can be access from the command line by the following URL:


Subclipse 0.9.32 allows me to browse the repository without any problem. I can
see the change log and view files inside of the Subclipse Repository
Explorer. :-)

Unfortunately 0.9.32 doesn't allow me to neither "Checkout as..." nor to
"Team / Share / SVN". Both commands to either not work or post messages like
"Not implemented yet.". :-(

So I used Eclipse's Online Update facility to update Subclipse to current
0.9.33 release and hoped it would work now.

Actually the "Team / Share /SVN" command seems to be implemented now. :-)

Unfortunately, the repository browser seems to be broken! When trying to
access the repository, I get the following message box:

Unable to validate
Error validating location: "org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn:
'/home/markus/file:/home/markus/svn/trunk' does not exist"
Keep location anyway?
Yes No

Also, the svn console shows these lines:

    svn: '/home/markus/file:/home/markus/svn/trunk' does not exist
    svn: '/home/markus/file:/home/markus/svn/trunk' does not exist
    svn: '/home/markus/file:/home/markus/svn/trunk' does not exist

I thought it to be my fault, so I discarted the repository location and tried
to repeat my steps. But no, again the same message. So it seems to be a
regression bug in Subclipse 0.9.33 (again, in 0.9.32 it works well).

Obviously Subclipse seems to do some faults in the URL handling. The actual
typed in URL was file:///home/markus/svn/trunk, while the logs contain the
screwed URL /home/markus/file:/home/markus/svn/trunk. Sure this cannot
work. :-(

Please add this bug to your bug database (on the Subclipse site there is told
that I shall not add it on my own but post it to the mailing list).

Thanks You
Markus KARG

P. S.: Would be great if you could tell me a workaround meanwhile. :-)
