I hope this comment does not offend you Glenn, but posts like this
really annoy me, and the only reason I even say anything is because
I've seen this particular flavor of post a lot recently. Basically
someone has a problem, then makes this enormous leap of a conclusion
to it being related to Ganymede and combines it with an alarmist
subject. I get annoyed because there is no logic to it and I know it
will scare off users that do not have the time to read the details and
see there is nothing to it.

On to the problem ....

This is fairly common (always has been). There is even an FAQ:

http://subclipse.tigris.org/faq.html#wc-not-locked

It was written a long time ago so perhaps could use some updating.
Anyway, even though this error that Subversion is spitting out is kind
of verbose and uses some intimidating terminology, it is one of the
few I have seen where the information is actually helpful and contains
pretty much all you need to solve the problem.

"svn: Directory
'D:\new-workspace\dylt-parent\dylt-command\target\.svn' containing
working copy admin area is missing"

Basically, as the FAQ states (or should I did not re-read it),
something has deleted the .svn folder from this folder named "target".
 The most common cause is typically an Eclipse build process that
deletes the entire folder (and these subfolders) and recreates it all
as part of the build. The best solution, typically, is to not store
this folder in Subversion.
