Question on Subversion Functionality

From: Mark Eramo <mark.eramo_at_trustvesta.com>

Hello,
  I am having a problem with Subversion and wondering if anyone has run
into this before. ( I am rather new to Subversion so I am not sure if
this is a bug or I am doing something wrong).

We are using Subcommander 1.2.2 as our GUI Interface. Here is the issue.

I check out the following folder/code from the Subversion Repository:
*/svn/repo/Database/project1/trunk*
Now the code is on my local PC. When I setup a working copy folder, it
shows up fine in subcommander.
I put the code into in */home/user/Subversion/Database/project1 (mind
you, the code in trunk resides i nthe project1 folder so there ie now
trunk sub folder).*

A developer came along and added the following folder into Subversion:
*/svn/repo/Database/project1/trunk/test
*So now there is a test cases folder under trunk with new code.

I now go into Subversion and checkout the *test cases only*, not all the
code under trunk.
They would get checked out to:
*/home/user/Subversion/Database/project1/test

*If I then look at the working copy view in Subcommander, it is like
Subversion does not know I have it checked out there. In Subcommander,
the folder test shows up with a question mark. Subversion does not see
them as being under source control but I just checked this out from the
repository. The test folder has it's own .svn folder now and the code is
in the test folder.

If I start over and do a recursive checkout on the trunk folder to
include all the files in test as well, it shows up fine in subcommander.

It is almost like subversion is not updating the information in the*
/home/user/Subversion/Database/project1/.svn* folder to tell it about
the new folder/code the I just checked out underneath.

I was wondering if anyone has run int this? Could this be a subversion
or subcommander bug? Could I be doing something wrong, missing a step?

Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Mark
