Therefore I'd like to use TortoiseSVN; but after importing a workspace into the repository and checking out or exporting it, the IDE fails to open the workspace. Either  nothing happens (i.e. as it would be absolutely no .metadata in there) and you're greeted with several empty windows, or it gets the paths completely wrong--and nothing can be opened either, also at least the project shows up in the workspace explorer (but without any files and you're not able to open it in any way).

Definitely back to Netburner. I share WCs between Tortoise and
standard Eclipse (with Subclipse) daily.
