Re: Eclipse failure in testing



I just found some clues to the problem and a workaround. The same problem is
reported in an eclipse forum:
http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php?t=msg&goto=492101&S=da6dca63dfbc0b70f10c713ae3c539f3.
The bug and a workaround are described in the eclipse bug report
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=291257. For quick reference,
the solution is setting GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true and exporting.
