Comment 1 Ben Konrath 2006-04-22 01:46:58 EDT
I can't reproduce this on i686 with these packages:


Could you try starting Eclipse with a clean workspace and configuration
directory?  Something like this should do the trick: 

% mv ~/.eclipse ~/.eclipse.bak
% eclipse -data ~/workspace-new

If it still happens, can you post the log file? You can find it in
Comment 2 Matthew Sage 2006-05-26 10:31:47 EDT
This has been happening to me too!

The problem appears to be a gjc problem as when I change over to Sun's jre, the
errors dissappear.

The log files I get are identical to the one found in comment #9 of bug 188192.
