Why empty folders don't import to eclipse project ?

I invoked tortoise svn client to checkout 'c' language project from subversion repository. Checkout is successful. All folders/files and empty folders for storing derived
objects are in the checkedout folder.

I create eclipse workspace. Then, I create empty 'c project' in eclipse.

I import checkedout project to eclipse as follows:

From eclipse main menu, File - Import - General - File System. I browse to folder in windows explorer that contain the checkout project. I click Finish.
Project is imported to eclipse but empty folders didn't get imported. In the Import diaglog box, empty folders were selected. Why didn't they import ?

If I completely bypass tortoise svn client and checkout project from eclipse svn plugin, then empty folders are present in the eclipse project.

This might be a problem with eclipse Import Wizard because dragging files from the file system and dropping them into one of eclipse navigation views works. Empty folders are imported.
