Description of problem:
The settings for the Preferences dialog gets corrupted such that
significant portions of the options disappear. For example, when I
started eclipse and looked in preferences, all Java configuration
options including the entry for Java were gone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This has happened twice. I use eclipse almost every day.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open eclipse.
2. Open preferences
Some options are missing in preferences
All preferences should be present.
In addition, ant would no longer run. Basically the whole eclipse
system is hosed requiring a system rebuild from the ground up.
Checking out all projects, adding all plugins, setting preferences. A
full day or more of work.
Do you use the natively-compiled eclipse, or do you use a 3rd-party
Java Virtual Machine?
In the two instances when this has happened, can you identify any
specific steps to reproduce?
