Description Brad Smith 2004-01-14 21:34:32 EST
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):

How reproducible:
This has happened twice. I use eclipse almost every day.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open eclipse.
2. Open preferences
Actual results:
Some options are missing in preferences

Expected results:
All preferences should be present.

Additional info:
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?

Also, please be sure to update to the latest Red Hat Developer Suite
package using RHN (see
