I think these projects must have been set up with Wing IDE Professional 
since Personal does not have the shared project feature and always 
stores everything in the .wpr.  In Pro you would get a .wpr which you 
can check into SVN and a .wpu which you should not.  Using a project 
with both Personal and Pro generally works but not so well if you're 
using shared projects.
