I don't think TSVN and subclipse clobbered each others' actual code -
TSVN is a Windows shell extension, subclipse is a Java plugin for
Eclipse - they're very separate.

An update never commits anything into the database. Can you describe
the exact steps that happened?

If you're sharing a working copy, this makes sense. The current
release of TSVN is a Subversion 1.4 client, which uses a new working
copy format. Older clients can't read this format, and presumably your
installation of subclipse is still a 1.3 or older client. Check for a
subclipse update.

As stated above, the 2 do not actually share any code when running
(they may use the same libraries, but they're ultimately separate).
Your issue is not with TSVN and subclipse being mutually exclusive on
your system - the issue is that your SVN 1.3-based subclipse cannot
read your SVN 1.4-based TSVN's working copies.

As long as you don't use TSVN on your subclipse working copy, they can
coexist on the same computer. Once sublicpse is updated to understand
the SVN 1.4 working copy format, you can resume sharing.
