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):
Steps to Reproduce:
examine the source
I checked in the fix, and submitted it upstream.
