I have s simple e4 application based on a model. The splash screen shows. then a large empty window flashes on the screen and disappears and then the application starts.

It happens both from a launch within eclipse and also when I have exported the application (based on features).

I have just created a fresh new product e4sample using the file - new - e4 application project and launched it from the e4sample.product file without any changes. It also flashes a large empty window before rendering the smaller application.

My colleague have the same issue. He uses Eclipse 4.2.0 M5 (build id I20120127-1145) on Windows 7.
I have the same version on Ubuntu and, using the same code, I have no issue.

I am using the 4.2 sdk (eclipse-SDK-4.2M5-win32.zip) and the e4 tools and modeling updates from http://download.eclipse.org/e4/downloads/drops/S-0.12M5-201201271145/repository
