I think you hit a common issue with Eclipse. The update mechanism provided by Eclipse is not really compatible with Debian's packaging system. Often it just works but sometimes you will experience weird bugs due to incompatible versions. The only way to debug such a problem is to deinstall all downloaded Eclipse plugins. If you still see the same bug while only Debian packages are installed, then this is a Debian specific bug or something we can forward upstream. Otherwise there is no way for us to fix this issue because we have no control over the downloaded plugins. I understand that this might not be a satisfactory answer but the only way to avoid such bugs is to disable Eclipse's way of updating plugins and to use the provided Debian packages whenever possible.
