You should check if you don't have a "sparse working copy" by accident
To see whether this is the case, check "svn info" for some of the
parent dirs, and see if they have a "Depth: empty" or "Depth:
immediates" on them or something like that (if there is no depth shown
in "svn info", it's the default which is "infinity", which is usually
what you want).

In IntelliJ IDEA there's a bug that, if you create a new package, and
you answer "yes" in the dialog which asks you if you want to add it to
version control immediately, it's added with depth empty (so as a
workaround, you should answer no, and add it afterwards). See

But since you talk about subclipse, I assume you're using Eclipse, so
that's probably not it ...
