Thanks for the suggestions Mark.

I had tried this with one project before, without success, but the key was
to disconnect all the projects which were connected to the bogus repository
definition so that it could be deleted. I just deleted the one repository
location which was too high up in the hierarchy and then re-shared

I should have mentioned that I already tried this and it only allows you to
browse to the same URL or its parent. ie http://argouml.tigris.org or
http://argouml.tigris.org/svn when the current URL is

Most of the projects in this workspace were created from an Eclipse Project
Set File and have "branch" decorations which are the fully specified URL (eg
"http://argouml.tigris.org/svn/argouml/trunk/src/model" instead of
"trunk/src/model" which looks a little weird but appears to just be a
cosmetic issue.

My best guess as to how this got messed up is that I created a repository
location definition for "http://argouml.tigris.org/svn", found it didn't
work, but didn't delete it, created another for
"http://argouml.tigris.org/svn/argouml" and then at some point, perhaps when
switching branches for a project, Subclipse decided to pick the higher level
root which only partially works. It should probably exclude from
consideration any location which doesn't meet its requirements. That
scenario could easily be wrong though because it's been messed up for a
couple of weeks and I've just been living with it since I could still get
updates applied.

Thanks again for getting my workspace sorted out.
