Yes I'm using the Project->Clean and then selecting 5 projects to clean 
at once. It cleans and then rebulds  the workspace. When that has 
completed there are errors in some projects which can then be removed by 
right-clicking on the ivy.xml[*] entry and selecting "Resolve" on each 
affected project.

Not as far as I know - some of the projects are referenced by other 
projects (using the Projects tab in the "Configure Build Path" dialog)

Yes I am using WTP - BUT the projects in which the problem occurs are 
only 'Java' projects and only have the 'Java Nature' so there should be 
no WTP stuff in there. I've checked, and none of these projects have a 
.settings folder at the top level which is where WTP stores its 
configuration stuff.

As a general note it seems to me like the ivy cache is being cleared by 
the multiple project rebuild but for each project. I don't understand 
why. Maybe I'm doing something stupid in the ivy settings?

Hope that clarifies the problem.
