I'm using eclipse.org version of Eclipse 3.2 along with Sun JDK 1.6.0
on an updated rawhide. Eclipse has always worked perfectly until a
couple of days ago.

When I use the 32-bit JDK or JRE with the 32-bit Eclipse (SWT has to
be compiled against GTK on Unix platforms, thus SWT-using applications
are not arch-independent) everything works fine (apart from the
checkboxes). The problem I mentioned only affect Java/x86_64 and
64-bit SWT apps.

Currently checkboxes are broken. They don't seem to highlight
correctly when pressed and also seem to act as a button group even
though they're not. It makes even simple things (like using the file
import dialog to import files into a project) very difficult.

Yup. As Kevin mentioned, this affects PyGTK apps as well. Native GTK
apps (and Firefox) works fine for some strange reason.
