I'm not sure what's going on here, but here's what I did:

I had an old project with an svn repository accessed via svn+ssh. I wanted to restart the project with a fresh repository, so I moved the repo, deleted the eclipse project, started a new project (with the same name) in eclipse, created a new repo (at the same location as the old one) with svnadmin, and shared the project. Now, when I try updating the project, I get an error message that the repository UUID doesn't match the expected one. And looking at the .svn/entries file, some of the files have the UUID from the old repository attached to them, rather than the new one. Does subversive cache repository UUIDs between operations? Any ideas how to fix this?

(Edited to add a copy of .svn/entries. 835a26aa-63e6-480e-8c74-d3e92cf0f6c8 is the correct UUID; c734ae08-ab2f-46a9-aaeb-568ac34088cc is the one from the old repository.)

A quick update: changing the UUIDs in the entries file to the correct ones and restarting eclipse fixed the issue. The fact that a restart was necessary seems to indicate that at least some caching is going on, and therefore that was probably the original cause of the problem. So I guess this is just one to remember: if you're creating a new repository in the same place as an old one, remember to restart before trying to work with it.
