[Subclipse-users] Problem tagging projects from working copy with moved directories

From: Oliver Weise <ow_at_innovationgate.com>

We experience the following reproducible problem using Subclipse 1.6.6
on Eclipse 3.5 64bit/Linux. Our Subversion Server is of Version 1.5.2.
We tested this with both backends, SVNKit (1.3.2) and JavaHL (1.6.5).

Starting with a shared project without any local changes having folders
"/foldera" and "/folderb", containing several files

    * Move "foldera" into "folderb" using drag&drop or refactoring:
      Subversion issues a command "move .../foldera .../folderb/foldera"
    * Commit all project changes (works as expected)
    * Enter Project Menu "Team -> Branch/Tag...."
    * Specify some directory for the new tag, Click next
    * Specify "Create copy in the repository from" as "Working Copy",
      Click Next, then Finish

Tagging fails with the following error messages (roughly translated from

Working copy not locked; this is probably a bug, please report
svn: Directory ".../foldera" missing
Can't find a working copy path

Did we do anything wrong? Is moving dirs via drag&drop or refactoring
supported/recommended in subclipse, or should we use the "copy" menu
item for something like this?

Thanks for any help,
