You might give JavaHL a try to see if we can narrow it down to an adapter
problem or a Subclipse problem. I know that JavaSVN has had some
difficulties in dealing with symlinks correctly. Also, there is a
property you can set to turn off the symlink handling that it does
include. It has often been recommended that people set this property to
correct performance problems. You might just review that you did not set
this property. I think it would an Eclipse JVM startup property.
