  • CollabNet Desktop for Eclipse 3.4
    To avoid handing Eclipse on "building workspace" job when using Subclipse 1.2.x on nested projects, make sure that the following setting is disabled Window / Preferences... / Team / SVN / Label Decorations / General tab / Compute depth outgoing state for folders. You can take the thread dumps to confirm that issue is related to Subclipse and not the Maven integration. This issue is resolved in Subclipse 1.4.x.
