What version of Subclipse and what OS?

Current version (1.4.3) has a checkbox on dialog to hide/remove all
unversioned files on dialog. On some versions of Linux the checkbox
does not show up due to an apparent SWT/GTK bug.

Eclipse/Subversion also gives you several ways to automatically ignore files.
