This is a long known issue. The problem is in Subversion itself. I
am hoping the WC rewrite coming in 1.7 might fix it. But basically if
you ask SVN about the status it sometimes will tell us an item is an
external (or switched) and sometimes not. It depends on where in the
tree you execute the API and that varies based on the Eclipse event
that causes us to call the API.
