Description Tom Tromey 2002-10-15 15:44:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020513

Description of problem:
Eclipse uses /tmp/platform during startup.
(I'm not sure what it uses this for.)
This seems like a barrier to having multiple instances
of Eclipse running under different users 
on a given machine at the same time.

See PlatformURLConnection for the code creating this.
(Search for "tmpdir")
This is in org.eclipse.core.boot

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
