Version: 3.8.0~rc4-1
Severity: grave
Tags: upstream
Justification: renders package unusable

I did an apt-get dist-upgrade which upgraded my eclipse from 3.7.2 to

After the upgrade, when I start eclipse, it hangs at the splash screen with
"Loading Workbench".

After removing ~/.eclipse and restarting "eclipse", I get this log in
