Re: Weird: TSVN automatically adding directories to my working copy

OK, I did more checking and I'm really not sure what's going on.

I thought maybe you were right, so I created a file called
"CopyMeIdoubleDareYou.txt" and put it in my /src/.svn folder. I did a
build, and low and behold, there it appeared in the /bin/.svn folder.
So, I thought you were right. But, then I checked the timestamps,
and they didn't make sense.

All of the svn related files and folders had the timestamp of the
moment of the build, but the timestamp for my "CopyMe" file remained

So, I tried again.

Now when I do a build, the /bin folder doesn't get a .svn folder, but each
folder underneath it does.

So, I put my "CopyMeIdoubleDareYou.txt" file into the /src/com/.svn
folder. Guess what, it does not get copied to /bin/com/.svn

Another item, the prop-base and text-base folders in the .svn folders
are NOT appearing the the /bin tree.

Something very, very weird is happening. I *do not* suspect that TSVN
is copying files. I do not believe these files are being copied, I think they
are being created. (Except for files in the root /src folder, which I think
are being assumed to be resources, and copied to /bin. Files in /src/com
and below do not appear to be subject to being copied.)

I now suspect some sort of obscure failure in eclipse. This baffles me,
because there is no subversion support installed on this instance of
