We use the exact layout as mentioned in Collins-Sussman's book (it is the same structure from the Pragmatic books as well). So I don't get what we are doing wrong that makes Subclipse fetch both the trunk and the tags directory. We have Subclipse "mounted" at the root of the project. If tags, branches and trunk are all sub directories fo the root then isn't Subclipse going to update all three directories when we do an Update? What are we missing? Do we somehow tell Subclipse to ignore the tags directory?
Thanks for your help.

Yes. Subversion uses the metaphor of a file system. You need to
structure your file system in such a way that your trunk can be checked
out independently of the tags so that you do not run into this. Have you
looked at the Subversion book at all? It has some good information on
this sort of stuff.
