I just upgraded to eclipse-platform-3.2.0-1jpp_3fc and get the same problem.

Also, to be clear, in order to reproduce, you click on What's New, and then
"Eclipse Platform" on the What's New page.

This was a problem with the symlinking in %install of the tomcat jars.  Watch
for eclipse-3.2.0-7.fc6 which will hopefully have this fixed.  I'll put this to
NEEDINFO:  green for now until we can verify.
