Should I file a bug report somewhere? Do you know if this is an issue
specifically with Subclipse, or a general Eclipse issue? It only seems to
happen when I try to install the optional Mylyn integration, and doesn't
happen with some of the other plugins I have that use the Mylyn integration.
Do you know if there is a log file somewhere I can tail to see if I can at
least find the root of the null pointer?

I am using SVNKit, but I didn't have any symlinks. I did eventually get this
to work by renaming my "java" directory under src to ".java" and then
re-synchronizing and updating. I then renamed it back to "java" and was able
to add it's contents to version control.
