I'm using RapidSVN to access the SVN repository for a project I'm part of. When I have an existing instance of Eclipse open and try to open a new file from RapidSVN I get a message from Eclipse saying, "Workspace in use or cannot be created, choose a different one."

Is there an Eclipse argument I can use to tell it to open the specified file in the current workspace? I have tried 'eclipse -data /workspace/path /file/to/open' and I get a message saying, "Could not launch the product because the associated workspace is currently in use by another Eclipse application.".

thanks for any help,
