[Subclipse-users] Sudden Problems Creating Directories

Hi, folks! I just signed up for this e-mail list, so excuse my ignorance
if this question is dumb. I search the archives but could not find
anything useful. I'm having some trouble creating directories and
sharing new projects all of a sudden, and I can't seem to workaround it.
We're hosting Subversion 1.3.1 via mod_svn on Apache 2.0.52 and
connecting with Eclipse 3.1.2 via Subclipse 1.0.3. We've been through a
few updates of Subclipse, but this repository has been stable and under
constant use for about 6 months now. We follow a basic layout as

        Project 1/
        Project 2/

and we use verbose names for the projects, including spaces, to match
the name of the actual Eclipse project. The number of projects has grown
quite large (50+), and I'm wondering if that is the cause for the error.
The symptoms of the problem are that I can create a new project under
the root of the repository, but as soon as I try to make the branches
and tags directories, it silently fails. When I use JavaHL, I see the
mkdir command in the log but no error or commit confirmation:

        mkdir -m ""

When I use JavaSVN, I get a commit confirmation as well:

        mkdir -m ""
            Committed revision 1234.

In both cases, the directory does not appear when I refresh. If I try to
share a project to the trunk directory, I get the following with JavaHL:

            Filesystem has no item
        svn: URL
'http://subversion/repositories/repositoriy/Project/trunk' non-existent
in that revision

        mkdir -m "Initial import."
        checkout -N -r HEAD
            Bad URL passed to RA layer
        svn: URL
'http://subversion/repositories/repositoriy/Project/trunk' doesn't exist

and the following with JavaSVN:

            svn: '/repositories/repository/!svn/bc/1234/Project/trunk'
path not found: 404 Not Found (http://subversion)
        mkdir -m "Initial import."
            Committed revision 1235.
        checkout -N -r HEAD
            svn: URL
'http://subversion/repositories/repositoriy/Project/trunk' doesnt exist

If I try the exact same thing against another repository on the same
server (with a lot less projects) it works like a charm. Also, I can use
the svn commandline tools to manually create the directories and import
the Eclipse project, and then I'm able to checkout and commit with
subclipse just fine.

It seems to me that there is a bug in subclipse dealing with large
directory listings (perhaps it's not getting the complete listing from
the repository before attempting the next action?) but I wanted to see
if anyone else had a similar issue, or could offer some assistance.
