This seems to be working now, sorry for the false alarm.
Not sure what went wrong, or what I did right, but I somehow
convinced it to recognize my previously created workspace.

Howevever, I do get an exception now whenever I open said
workspace:

Problems occurred restoring workbench.
  Unable to restore perspective: Workspace - Java.
    Internal error activating an Editor.

The desktop is restored, but the Package View is missing,
and I can not find it anywhere... Is this expected behaviour?

If you use a workspace that has been created with an Eclipse that has plugins
that are not installed with the current version, you will get a message similar
to that. 

Have tried getting the package explorer back by doing:

Window -> Show View -> Package Explorer

If that doesn't work, can you post a screenshot of:

Help -> About Eclipse SDK -> Plugin Details

Try to make that window as big as possible and include as many of the jdt
plugins as your screen will allow. Can you also post your
workspace/.metadata/.log file. Thanks.

Adding the Package Explorer from:
    Window -> Show View
didn't work as I could not find it.

I've attached a screenshot of the fully expanded
   Window -> Show View
IIRC, it resides in a 'Java' group that doesn't
even appear in my case. Strange.

I've added screenshots of
    Help -> About Eclipse SDK -> Plugin Details
I had to do it in two pages to include everything.

I've also included my .metadata/.log file as you
requested.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

<blush>I haven't installed all plugins</blush>

Yes, now I get the "Package Explorer", and the error is gone as well.

Everything works fine now, this is not a bug.
