You should try the CollabNet merge client which is built atop
Subclipse. I will be adding info on this to the Subclipse web site in
the coming weeks. Here is some info:

I am sure it is too late, but I am 100% sure when you reverted back to
TortoiseSVN, you found that you have the same problem. Perhaps the
SVN error message is too daft, but it is basically saying that
something you are committing was not at the HEAD revision in your
working copy. You need to update and then commit.

You are not the only person to report this. We have not been able to
recreate it to fix it. If you have any ideas on the secret recipe to
reproduce let us know. When we see this kind of error, there is one
semi-obvious fix we can make. When we looked at code, that fix was
already in it. So we are at a loss as to what to do at the moment.

The logic behind it is that for most people, most of the time, they
want to commit/revert everything in the dialog. The check boxes
confuse the UI for the normal case. You can right-click to remove
items. The UI for this dialog was modeled after the CVS dialogs in
Eclipse, which have been like this for many years now. I looked for
bug reports where people complained but could not find any. So we
went with it. I blogged about this a year ago when we added it.


We are going to make an enhancement for 1.4.1 where there is a single
checkbox in the dialog to show/hide unversioned items. It remembers
your last setting. The checkbox only appears when there are
unversioned items, which hopefully makes it more obvious.
