This is not a Subclipse bug, it is the behavior of the Eclipse
builders when it does a rebuild all. The best thing is to just not
version these folders. You could perhaps configure Eclipse to build
to a different folder as another workaround. I am sure there are
issues filed for this at Eclipse but it seems unlikely they intend to
fix it. That said, I wonder why they are able to behave correctly
when you mix your compiled output in with your source folders. So it
might be worth raising it again.
