Invalid Project Description, project path overlaps the location of another project with the same name When Importing Existing Android Project in Eclipse

I’ve got a new install of Eclipse and am setting up to do some Android development.

After getting the Develeper Tools and NDK Plugins installed and linking to the ADT-bundle that I downloaded, I was getting an error when attempting to import the existing project by going to File > Import > Android > Existing Android Code Into Workspace.

The error was:

Invalid project description /some/path/to/project/dir_name overlaps the location of another project: dir_name

After a few searches and a couple of tries, using the File > Import > General > Existing Projects into Workspace seemed to work just fine.
