Hi,

I've seen some weird inconsistent behavior with the compare with functionality in subversive. This is the scenario:

You have a different branch that you want to compare a whole project with. You right click on the project and select Team->"Compare with Revision or URL" and specify the URL your other branch is located.

The result is a list of every file in the project marked with a + with the exception of direct children in the hierarchy. So image this project:

PROJECT
---src
------file1.java
------file2.java
---file3.properties

If you compare this, it'll show you, that file1 and file2 are not existing and they will be decorated with a +.
file3 will be shown correctly with the differences.

If you perform the same action on the src folder, file1 and file2 will be shown correctly. So there's a problem with the hierarchy i guess.

So this bug shows a screenshot of how the compare editor looks like for the failure:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=246495

here's the screenshot:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/attachment.cgi?id=111917

Note the "Cannot compare..." comment in the compare editor. this only happens with files further down in the hierarchy then direct children.

I'll open a bug for this later on.

Another problem I have is that my WebContent folder could not be compared at all. The dialog wouldn't even open. There is no exception or anything shown. When debugging it comes down to the IStateFilter that seem to not accept my folder. I couldn't figure out yet why this is the case. It only happened with my folder. Checking it out one more time doesn't do the trick.

Maybe anyone got a similar problem? Help is greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Just realized that the project structure killed all whitespaces when saving. I changed it, so people can see what structure I meant.
