Why does "Update Project" list every IDEA module as a separate "affected root"?

Maven-based project, 60 modules. Update Project->Affected Roots shows 60 roots, one for each module. This causes two problems for us:

1. SVN update is painfully slow (takes about 60 times as long as update on command line).
2. Switching to a different branch in the "Update Project" dialog is virtually impossible because we'd have to do this 60 times, once for each affected root.

Is there a way to configure IDEA such that it shows just one "affected root" that covers the whole project?

Cheers,
Peter

Hello Peter,

Please check the directory mappings in Settings | Version Control. If you
create one mapping for , there should be just one affected
root shown in the update operation.

I only have one mapping (Project Root -> Subversion). Nevertheless, "Update Project" lists 60 "affected roots".
