There are certain limits and exceptions when working with SharePoint 2010 content with SharePoint Workspace 2010. Note that the navigation pane of the SharePoint Workspace 2010 displays links to unsupported lists and libraries, which you can conveniently click to work with in SharePoint 2010 for full support if you are online.
