[Subclipse-users] Canceling an update, hanging Eclipse

From: RedBugz Software <redbugz_at_gmail.com>

This happens to me several times a month, sometimes several times a week.

I am trying to update my projects (about a dozen) from svn (using
synchronize) over a vpn, and my connection gets flaky. All of my svn
update tasks hang. I am now totally stuck. I cannot quit Eclipse, as
the update tasks are blocking. Canceling them does not work. They get
marked as canceled, but they never actually end. My only option is to
force-quit Eclipse, which tends to reset my workspace so I lose all my
perspectives, etc. Very annoying.

I've searched around the issue list and the mailing list and only
found one similar reference last year that wasn't resolved.
The discussion seemed to be that the underlying task (javahl or
javasvn) can't be canceled, but even if that is the case, there should
be way to cancel the Eclipse UI task so it doesn't sit in the progress
queue forever and block Eclipse from quitting and restarting. And
often, the update actually did complete (doing an svn st -u from the
terminal shows it as updated).

Does anyone else experience this, or is it an isolated case?

Eclipse 3.3.2 on a MacBook Pro, Subclipse 1.2.4.
