I just tried the OpenJDK incase there is something specific in the
SunJDK which causes this but I still get the crash.
I will go and file a bug with eclipse (any tips on how to do it), I just
thought due to the high number of crashes I get it couldn't normally get
through like this and so may be it was something due to having
accessibility/orca running. From what you say accessibility isn't the cause.

I don't think that this can be cause by orca.
I am not running java from sun, insted I am running java from ibm and
my distro is ubuntu 10.04.
Perhaps this can make some difference.
I think that you should open a bug in eclipse bugzilla.

I am using debian unstable, but eclipse 3.6RC3 is the tarball from
the eclipse website. Orca is from GIT, pulled last night (a matter of
Any more thoughts?
BTW: Accessibility in general seems to be quite improved in 3.6RC3,
its just such a shame it crashes as often as it does for me,
rendering it useless.

I am using eclipse 3.6 rc3 on my day job without big problems.
What distro are you using?
What version of orca?
What java VM?
In my opinion this is the more stable version of Eclipse that I've
used with the orca.

I have noticed that when using eclipse 3.6RC3 (other SWT

orca/accessibility running, but I doubt such unreliability could be
accepted by the large eclipse user base).
I haven't noticed a exact way of causing eclipse to crash, but as
it happens so frequently I will give what actions seem to be able
to cause the crash. Open eclipse and choose a source file and enter
the source code editor. Now just cursor around (generaly less than
a minute), for me it will crash very soon, but I can't give any
specific movement to do to cause one.
I also notice it for some of the SWT Snippets when using SWT 3.6RC4
(eg. Snippet212 "embedding images in StyledText" will also crash
when cursoring around its StyledText control while having orca
Is this an orca issue, are we doing something to crash eclipse or
is it something in SWT?
Does anyone else notice this? I never had this sort of issue with
earlier versions of eclipse (in fact I am unsure whether I have
ever had an eclipse crash until I tried eclipse 3.6RC3).
