I'm investigating a mysterious Eclipse startup problem
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=506113 that manifests itself
as NPEs in different places but all pointing to getDefault() method of some
plugin returning null.

Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this problem myself although it happens
quite regularly to some users. I'm looking for tracing options or code
instrumentation that would help me understand where the initialization
sequence breaks.

I tried to use the following tracing options but unfortunately they write
to stdout that is difficult to correlate with exceptions written to the
Eclipse error log.

# Turn on general debugging for org.eclipse.osgi
# Prints out timing information for bundle activation

Looking for bright ideas.
