[Subclipse-users] Useless repository browser at switch

Hello all!

I have noticed that sometimes, the projects appear in the Eclipse Package
Explorer as
  + argouml [trunk/src_new]
  + argouml-core-lib [trunk/lib]
...
and sometimes with the full url:
  + argouml [http://argouml.tigris.org/svn/argouml/trunk/src_new]
  + argouml-core-lib [http://argouml.tigris.org/svn/argouml/trunk/lib]

I have not been able to figure out when one or the other is used or how to
switch from one of the notations to the other. It hasn't really mattered.

What I have noticed though, is that for projects with the full
url, selecting where to switch is complicated. When I press Browse, the
Branches and Tags entries are fine but the rest of the entries in the
Repository Browser is starting from below the project (below /trunk/src_new)
and I cannot find a way to get up above that. Since usually I want to switch
to something that is not below the project itself (typically
/branches/work_issue1234_something) the Repository Browser part of the
dialog is pointless. I have to type in the URL manually.

I would prefer the Repository Browser to always be rooted at the root of the
current repository so that it always shows /branches, /tags, and /trunk if
the default repository setup is chosen. If the current project is to be
signalled in anyway, let it be selected and unfolded but leave it at that.
