This bug has always existed. See for example:


Eclipse does not provide an API or other mechanism for a team provider
to prevent this from happening. We added the Team > Copy and Export
options to give you a way to do it that does not break things.

SVN 1.7 will have a new WC format that gets rid of the .svn folders
except at the root, so that will also resolve the problem.
