Dramatic changes in Local-repo by IDE

      I have had amazing success rolloing out subversion at my new
company. The adoption has been taking place faster than I imagined
but I seem to have hit a hurdle.

One of the developers is using an IDE called Flowbuilder (XML edition,
www.flowbuilder.com). The IDE seems to have a tendency to delete a
lot of files and folders and recreate them that are under version
control. Also I speculate that even after closing the IDE, there are
locks on some files. The developer wants all the files (except the
binary executables) to be included in the repository because some of
these files that are deleted/modified by the IDE are necessary for
project management (which is why I cannot ignore them). When the IDE
deletes/recreates these files, it confuses the local repo because the
.svn folder is no longer there. When the user attempts to commit he
gets error messages about files being locked. Any suggestions?

By the way the flowbuilder site suggests using wincvs but I do not
want to use that.

Thank you,
Vijay Avarachen
