I'm facing an issue with my Eclipse (Juno, SR1). I've created a new Java Project in my workspace and after creating it, I detected a typo in the name, so I right-clicked the project and renamed it. That worked, but the old, wrong-named version still sticks around in my workspace as a closed project. The problem is that I cannot remove or delete this project, because every time I try, Eclipse tells me that the project doesn't exist on disk anymore (duh, you don't say...). It doesn't matter whether I tick the "also remove project from disk" option or not, the result is the same.
Is there anything like a "force remove from workspace" option hidden somewhere or any other solution that I might try (editing a config file in notepad or something)? I feel that there is a bug in the renaming procedure, otherwise the project with the original name would not stick around to begin with.
Also, the question is: why can I not remove a project from the Workspace (without deleting it from disk) when it doesn't exist on the disk anymore? Why does it have to exist on disk just in order to be removed from the workspace without actual file system deletion?
