Did you accidentally move one of the hidden .svn directories? Be careful about
them. This could be the reason they Subversion thinks there should be .java
files... Also check which URL is shown in the Subversion tab in Explorer
Properties. If it is not what you expected it could indicate that there is a
.svn directory in the wrong place in your working copy.

Nevertheless if Subversion commands work on that directory it isn't ignored.
Beside the note about the .svn directories about you either imported it, added
it manually or added it before you changed the global ignore setting. Ignored
directories don't get an overlay and are shown in "Check for modifications" as
ignored if you set the checkbox "Show ignored files".

BTW: In order to fully ignore the bin/ directory you have to set the global
ignore to "bin *\bin" which is explained at

But in your case I would prefer to set svn:ignore on the parent directory. That
property is saved in the repository and the ignore does not rely on a client
