I just tried this and it worked fine. I am on Windows, but do not think
that should matter. Also, I did not have the command line available, so
this is what I did:

1) Create connection to URL you gave above in Subclipse.
2) Checkout project as Simple Project to a folder outside my workspace.
3) Deleted project in Eclipse, without deleting contents.
4) Deleted the .project file that was created by step 2.
5) File -> Import -> Existing Projects into Workspace.
6) Selected folder from step 2. It shows me all 5 projects.
7) Import successfully auto-shared all 5 projects. No error in console.
Ops like Show History work.

What version of the svn command line did you use to checkout the projects?
 If it was not 1.3, maybe try it again using 1.3, or try my technique. I
know that 1.3 stores the repository root URL in the WC and earlier
versions did not. Auto-share uses that info if it is available, so maybe
if you are importing an svn:externals from a pre 1.3 WC you can get this
error?

That is my best guess.
