- I had the same problem with the Import, which as you say is the easier
method to do what I describe.

- The real problem, though, as I suspected, was a version problem. I
rechecked the update site being used: it was subclipse.tigris.org/update
instead of subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.6.x . Fixing that resolved my

- Note though that using File->New->Java Project: "Create project from
existing source" does indeed work. It creates the project and attaches
it to SVN properly (perhaps it overwrites project information). Using
the File->Import is more convenient since it retains the name of the
project and allows to import multiple projects at once.

- So my only puzzle is how I got the wrong update site - could have been
a typo or perhaps an obsolete web site. If it is no longer current, you
might consider disabling it as an update site.

Sorry for the wild goose chase.
