Thank you for the bug report. The above indicates that this is a problem with the upstream code. Therefore, this should be reported at bugs.eclipse.org.
Have you tried 3.5?
I have tried 3.5 and it has the same behavior.
The assertion fails on Fedora Core 11. It works as expected on RedHat 5.3
Since it works on RedHat, I don't understand why you think this might be an Eclipse problem rather than a Fedora one?

Okay, that's good. A bug upstream is really the best way to go here. If it's failing with an upstream download on Fedora 11, then the fault lies upstream and not in the Fedora package (which isn't patching anything that could affect this).

Because RHEL 5.3 is a lot older than Fedora 11. It sounds like an underlying GNOME or Gtk library changed in between RHEL 5.3 and Fedora 11. Either in API or in behaviour.
Reported to Eclipse as bug: 288668
The problem is in the client side code. A dependency was incompletely installed.
The Eclipse team was very helpful, as were you. Thanks for the quick response.
Glad to be of service.
