Ultimately these are Subversion problems. If you could track down a
reliable recipe that causes the problem there would either be an
explanation or potentially something could be done in Subclipse to prevent
or lessen it from happening. There are literally hundreds of ways you can
wind up with these sorts of errors as it is generic error that Subversion
uses when it runs into something unexpected.

The most common scenario for this problem in Eclipse environment is that
you have a directory that contains .class files versioned. When you do a
full build in Eclipse it deletes the folder (deleting the .svn metadata)
and recreates it with the new .class files. The answer is to then delete
this folder from your repository and add it to the svn:ignore property of
its parent.
