Description of problem:
When Eclipse is active, perform the following command:
lsof | grep java | wc -l
This counts the number of files open by java. I have seen this number range
from 670 to alomost 800 files opened by java. This seems to me to be a little
excessive and probably contributes to the slowness when Eclpse is started and
probably adds to huge amount of memory Eclipse uses.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.lsof | grep java | wc -l
Actual Results: It shows that Eclipse has opened between 650 and 800 files.
Expected Results: This bug is being added as something to look at when eclipse
performance issues are being looked at.
Current releases seem to have alleviated this problem somewhat.
