Also see here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openjdk-6/+bug/586765

The link also mentiones a workaround: Open the preferences, select "Maven" and uncheck "Download repository index updates on startup". You must be quick though, as the change must be completed before Eclipse crashes. ;-)

Comment 2 Ferry Huberts 2011-04-12 14:43:09 UTC
this is fixed by an openjdk update
