Indeed. Well it would make some sense to compare the files containing
the link information, this is what the command line does:

> svn diff
Index: kruisend-tiger.pdf
--- kruisend-tiger.pdf (revision 423)
+++ kruisend-tiger.pdf (working copy)
@@ -1 +1 @@
-link TI/src/kruisend-tiger.pdf
\ No newline at end of file
+link ../../Oberseminar TI/src/kruisend-tiger.pdf
\ No newline at end of file

But that’s only useful if the link has changed, not if the file has changed!

Will do: http://subclipse.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=795

Hm, I’m afraid my hacking skills do not suffice for that yet. But most
of all my knowledge of the Subclipse code.
