I'm not seeing this on x86_64 or x86 with IcedTea or gcj.  Note that you

running as a regular user.
Interesting. I only tried running it as root AFTER I could not start
Eclipse as my normal user. 

The F8T2 was a clean install, leaving my old home partition unformatted.
I didn't have any problems previously running Eclipse in F7. 

I'll try uninstalling/reinstalling Eclipse, making
sure /usr/share/eclipse is empty and try again.

I don't *think* this should cause a problem, but try temporarily moving
~/.eclipse out of the way and see if that fixes it.

I was on a totally fresh installed system, so there is no old  ~/.eclipse to mess up things.
