I guess the main question is what would be triggering us to even be
looking at that folder? Is your entire workspace folder and Subversion
working copy? There are known problems if that is the case.

We issue this message when we get a null returned from Eclipse when trying
to get an IResource for an item. In this case it would make sense that we
would get a null, since technically this is not part of the workspace. I
just have no idea what would be triggering us to be looking at this folder
in the first place. We do not just go snooping around your disk. We
respond to events we are sent by the framework.
