Your Eclipse project and the project in your repository have to have the
same structure. If you have the src folder in your repository, then it
works fine.

Subversion does not support single-file checkouts and it has very little
support for checking out a subset of a tree. You pretty much cannot do
this with Subversion and therefore Subclipse.

The tree-based design of Subversion makes it a lot more picky about this
stuff. Neither of these items could ever be implemented unless Subversion
makes some major changes in its design.
