Problem copying from one directory to another...

Strange thing happened... I have a /src/plugins
directory. In it I have sub folders for various
plugins I have. When I want to create a new plugin, I
simply create a new folder, then copy/paste the data
within any existing plugin into the new folder. This
is the first time I did this since I switch to
Subclips/Subversion. When I did this, it now shows the
folder I coped from as being IN subversion in the new
folder. However, when I try to delete it, it keeps on
getting regenerated. So I have something like this:


I copied the /src dir from the /prefs dir into a new
folder, /test, so it should initially look like this:


When I rename the /prefs/ to /test/ that works, but
another dir, /prefs/ is recreated at that moment and
has the little red x by it that subversion/subclipse
uses to designate a deleted file (I think?). If I
delete this folder, it shows up again automatically.

When I go to Team -> Commit on the /plugins/test
folder to commit the entire plugin, I get an error
that it couldn't delete the /prefs/ folder and the
path it returns is
/src/plugins/prefs/src/net/company/prefs AND NOT
/src/plugins/test/src/net/company/prefs. I do not know
why it keeps on trying to delete my /prefs/ plugin
path, but somehow, the copy/paste doesn't seem to
preserve the NEW folder path it resides under.

Sorry if this is confusing, but I am at a loss. I keep
on seeming to have issues that never happened with CVS
and am starting to get discouraged with
subclipse/subversion. I am spending too much time
trying to figure out why these things keep happening.
I know its not perfect, and its free, but maybe its
time to go back to CVS for a few more months until a
1.0 is released for Subclipse? I really want the
atomic commit and the ability to rename folders/files
without problems in subclipse, but at the expense of
hours evey week debugging issues, I can't justify to
my boss these issues.
