Project under subversion not recognized by IDEA 5.1

I have a project that imported into a subversion repository (using https protocol) and I've configured my project in IDEA to use subversion as my SCM. However, IDEA insists that the files in the project are not under version control even though they are accessible without an issue externally using tools like TortoiseSVN. Any ideas on how to make this work?

And yes, I did check the project out after importing it. :)

Hmm, never had this problem with Subversion and IntelliJ, always works fine after the checkout.

Have you made sure the ".svn" directories exist in your source tree (and they are readable by you)?

Can't really think of anything else...

Yes, the .svn directories are there and I examined their contents and they look correct (although I'm not an expert on what they contain).

Make sure you aren't using Tortoise SVN 1.4 outside IDEA.

We recently had a developer accidentally install this and it completely destroyed the Subversion support from within IDEA - files and directories would just "fall" out of source control!

fact is, Subversion 1.4 breaks the format of the workcopy as advertised on http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn/branches/1.4.x/CHANGES?revision=21165&view=markup

and IDEA is using aSubversion 1.3 compatible library to access the workcopy

Yes this is a problem with IDEA 6 and Subversion 1.4 as well.
