Description Jeremy Handcock 2003-11-10 14:53:38 EST
Description of problem:
The automated tests pass `-dev bin' to eclipse on startup, which
crashes eclipse when run natively.

for a detailed description of the problem and some hack-around
patches.  See the previous message in the same thread for instructions
on how to run the automated tests.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow the instructions in the message referred to above.

Actual Results:  Eclipse crashes.

Expected Results:  From the eclipse docs:

-dev [classpath entries]        Puts the platform in development mode.
 The optional classpath entries (a comma-separated list) are added to
each plug-in's classpath.  For example, when developing plug-ins, use
"-dev bin" to add the Java tooling's bin directory for each plug-in.
Redundant or non-existant classpath entries are eliminated.

The automated tests should run when this argument is used to start up
the eclipse.org automated test suite.

RHDS 2.0 (Eclipse 3.0) is no longer compiled natively, closing bug.
