I'm seeing the same whilst trying to synchronize a CVS repository inside
Eclipse. Using the java-1.5.0 VM is fine.

I can get this segfault with both IcedTea and OpenJDK. This is a problem we need
to track down in OpenJDK and report upstream.

Stack trace of Segfault
Stack traces (from all threads) of segfault and abort signal received at the
exact moment eclipse crashes. (used fcatch)
I reported this upstream with a stack trace/hs_err_pid*.log relevant to openjdk.
I will post the link to the bug report as soon as it is accepted.
For the time being, you can use this work around:
run eclipse with "-vm /path/to/lib/i386/libjvm.so" instead of "-vm
This has been determined a bug by Sun. It will probably show up in a day or two,
Fixed upstream. Will be in the next update
Updated in rawhide, will be in soon.
