Eclipse startup fails with an error popup. The log file shows lots of missing
bundle messages, such as:
Missing required bundle org.eclipse.ui_[0.0.0,null.
and the following error:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Application "org.eclipse.ui.ide.workbench"
could not be found in the registry...
The complete log file is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -rf ~/.eclipse ~/workspace
2. eclipse -debug -consolelog &> eclipse.log
An error popup is shown, pointing to a log file.
Eclipse should start up.
Also reproducible with java-sun.

Debug logs for the startup
Ziga, I've seen this problem before but I can't remember what causes it. Can you
send me the output of: 'ls -l /usr/share/eclipse/configuration'? That directory
should only have config.ini. If it has other stuff, it's safe to delete
everything but config.ini.
config.ini was the only file in /usr/share/eclipse/configuration.
However, I reinstalled all eclipse packages from scratch and it works fine now
(I had tried this before, but I left out libswt3-gtk2). I must have messed up
my installation somehow, sorry for the confusion.
