This problem was driving me absolutely batshit nuts yesterday, till I found a workaround.
Working on a PHP file, every time I typed anything of the form $foo->bar, I'd get one or two characters into the 'bar' part and Eclipse would go in to hyperspace ... "Not responding", Spinning Cursor of Death, and never comes back (to make sure, I went to lunch at one point). Turning off 'auto activation' for Content Assist didn't help.
After several hours of banging my head on the desk I noticed that it was just that one file. Every other file in my project was working fine.
The only difference was that the affected file was not part of any class structure, it's just some straight code (a user definable plugin script for my main app).
So I wrapped the code up in a class, and Hey Presto, the problem went away.
Has anyone else seen this? I just wanted to get some feedback before submitting a bug report.
I suspect this may have something to do with various reports I'm seeing on this forum about Helios being unusable, but that only some people seem to be experiencing. My guess is that most folk work almost exclusively with class based code, so never run in to this problem.
