I downloaded Eclipse Version: Build id: M20071023-1652 and built the client’s project. Everything was fine… It was fast, stable, and there were no configuration differences between the three supportive platforms. One day I hit the shortcut key for Open Resource (Apple/Command + Shift + R ), typed in a file name, hit enter and boom… first crash. Now, every time I want to use that feature Eclipse crashes on my session. The dialog box opens, I can type a file name and hit enter but before the file opens it crashes.

Looking at the crash log in ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/ and they are all very similar to this:

Process: eclipse [6516]
Path: /Applications/eclipse/
Identifier: org.eclipse.eclipse
Version: 3.3 (3.3)
Code Type: X86 (Native)
Parent Process: launchd [156]

Date/Time: 2008-02-15 14:27:50.676 -0800
OS Version: Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C31)
Report Version: 6

Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00000000000002ac
Crashed Thread: 0

Wondering if anyone else has seen this or knows of a fix.

The Eclipse IDE was working perfect for me on Mac OS X… Actually I always used it on Linux only because the Mac OS X version always a little weaker (from a stability perspective) and my PowerBooks were a little slower than my PCs. Now I have a 17″ 2.33GHz MacBook Pro with 2gb of ram.. and I figured I would give it shot as Eclipse has come a long way…
