[Subclipse-users] Drag and drop replace of a binary file caused Subclipse to mark file as deleted

We have two projects checked in to SVN. One contains source code for
a binary that is built and checked in to the other.

Our process under CVS (we've just recently switched over) involved
running an Ant script which builds the JAR, then dragging and
dropping the new JAR from project 1 to project 2, and then checking
it in in project 2.

However, now that we've switched to SVN, we find that Subclipse
detects the drag and drop replace as a deletion of the JAR file,
rather than a modification to the checked in content. We've found
that if we use File->Import... to replace the JAR file, Subclipse
properly detects this as a modification.

It would seem appropriate to me that at the very least, File-
>Import... and drag and drop for this scenario should work the
same. I believe File->Import... has the correct behavior, and that
the action on drag and drop should be changed to reflect that.
