Hmm. Maybe we need to start over then.

This is your first and only install of Subclipse?

Are you using any other Subversion clients, such as the command line? If
so, please state the clients used and their versions.

These projects with problems, how were they checked out? Which

The original problem you described would be what would happen if used a
Subversion 1.4 client of some sort (which would give the WC the new 1.4
format) and then tried to access it via JavaSVN from Subclipse pre-1.1.8.

If you are only using Subclipse, then it sounds like there has to be some
kind of JavaSVN bug present.

That could still have the problem. I think the problem should be
reasonably repeatable with different clients. As I understand it, the
problem is that on certain versions if Linux the device /dev/random which
is used to get a random number depends on some sort of entropy, such as
hardware interrupts from keyboard/mouse activity. If you are on a
headless server, you do not have any entropy and random number generation
is slow. The alternative is to use /dev/urandom which generates random
numbers using a different technique that is not "cryptographically
random". For SVN needs, this is fine. To fix the problem you have to
./configure APR to use it and then rebuild APR. The Subversion users@
archives would have a lot of messages related to this. Search for
"urandom" and "entropy" for messages.
