Metadata downloads workflow files but not contact.workflow

I'm setting up a project in Eclipse to download all of our workflow rules.  I select all for Workflow rules and I see many files in the workflows directory; Account.workflow, Opportunity.workflow, etc.  However, Contact.workflow is missing.  There's also another custom object we have that's missing.  But there are some custom objects there that don't even have any workflows.

I looked through the logs and saw some Java exceptions at the time of a metadata refresh but they didn't give me a clue as to why this would be happening.  Does anybody have any clues as to why some metadata components would be downloaded while others aren't being downloaded?

Have you tried with the latest version of the API, i.e., version 32.0?

Yes indeed!!  Sorry, I meant to reply earlier about this.  I tried that out before and it indeed worked.  You have to manually tweak the file to say it's a later version of the API.  I think it's just that Eclipse doesn't have the option to select a higher version of the API.
