The latest version of Subclipse is 1.4.2 (which includes SVN 1.5.1)

Subversion clients are all compatible with each other, but different
Subversion versions are not compatible with each other in the local
working copy. The working copy contains sort of a "database" that
tracks what revisions you have etc. Each release of Subversion
typically makes changes/improvements that require the format of that
data to change. So client alway check the version number of the
working copy before they attempt to read it.

Install Subclipse 1.4.2 and you will be all set.
