Description Marius 2005-03-31 11:00:34 UTC
Eclipse crashes sometimes, but the crashes go away if i tell blackdown-jdk to interpret only (-Xint), that means no JIT compiling takes place as i understand. Because of this i think this is blackdown-jdk problem (not eclipse).

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run eclipse
2. edit some java files with it

Actual Results:  
3. if you're unlucky enough you should experience java vm crash without any
exceptions or error messages

Expected Results:  
3. if you see eclipse crash you should at least find something in the log files

4. run java with eclipse jars by hand, use java vm switch -Xint
5. problems go away

sometimes eclipse crashes when opening some java source file, in that case it
happened that i couldn't open that specific file until i modified it externally...

now that i found the -Xint solution i have no problems anymore (but it's still a
bug isn't it:)

there is not much that we can do about it and it works fine for me on x86 and amd64.
