SActually just a report of what happened.

I think I refined it a bit it has to do with the order of
operations. If you hit "finish" it will pop up the wizard, if you
hit "next" it will not. if so this is a rather obscure feature.

Yes this is what CVS module does. However I just tried this, and
something just hangs when it is trying to read the repository paths
available before it gets to asking you if you want to delete it. So
I deleted the diretory manually to see what happens. (no editor
windows were open)

In general I think eclipse caches way too much information about what
is there crom CVS or .subversion and it too easily gets out of sync
with the state of things. In my current case an eclipse project is
part of a much larger working space and build that contains MSDEV
projects makefiles, code generators etc. So there is always a chance
that a outside commit will traverse the eclipse tree.
