eclipse stopped working correctly all of the sudden
Since a couple of hours ago I've been facing problems with eclipse and can't really figured them out. I even deleted the old eclipse I was working with (including workspace) and recreated it from its tgz. I still see the same problems.
When I go into the eclipse preferences frame I can see different errors in different parts of the settings.
When trying to see Java->Debug:
Unable to create the selected preference page
An error occurred while automatically activating
bundle org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui (146).
If I click on "Show error log", I see a empty "Error Log" frame.
If I go into Java->Installed JREs, I see the exact same type of message. Why is it happening? What can I do to get some verbose output from eclipse to see what's going on?
I'm working on eclipse 4.2.0 on kubuntu 12.04 i386 (updated as of this afternoon).
$ which java
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.4) (6b24-1.11.4-1ubuntu0.12.04.1)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

I have a question with regards to this: Can you try to run it against an (oracle/sun)-jdk and see if it still behaves erratically? I was checking the Gentoo bugzilla, I am seeing a number of issues with 4.2.0 and all of them that I have seen so far have been using OpenJDK. I'm just trying to cut down the possible sources of the issues.
How can I get debugging output from eclipse? I checked and --debug does nothing. I read somewhere that adding -Xdebug to eclipse.ini would do... but I saw nothing coming out of it. What are other possibilities?
