Andrew, can you see if you can reproduce this?
Comment 2 Andrew Overholt 2007-10-15 17:23:03 EDT
Before I try, I'd like to note that one shouldn't be running Eclipse as root.
Comment 3 Lillian Angel 2008-02-04 14:39:56 EST
I am not able to reproduce this- I did not run eclipse as root, though.

Andrew- any luck reproducing this problem?

Jochen Schmitt - Do you have the NullPointerException stack trace?
