I do not have much to offer. The Subversion operations are largely a
"black-box" to us in Subclipse. When we do something like checkout, we
are just running a Java method that has an interface that mimics the
command line client in terms of what you can ask it to do. What it then
does is outside our control. You might experiment with changing the
default adapter in your preferences from JavaHL to JavaSVN or vice versa.
JavaHL is the Subversion code, same as used by the command line. JavaSVN
is a pure Java alternative.

You cannot really mimic what Subclipse does using TortoiseSVN. You
generally can by using the CLI. The main thing to consider is that
Subclipse has to always pass fully qualified paths to the CLI, where as a
normal user would probably be using relative paths. I point this out
because sometimes problems can be recreated using the CLI by using full
