I'm having a huge number of problems with Eclipse 3.7.2 (J2EE developers bundle) at the moment. It frequently (dozens of times a day) becomes completely unresponsive, requiring the process to be terminated. Exactly when this happens varies - it can be refreshing the workspace, rebuilding projects, synchronizing SVN, or just updating classpaths on eclipse startup. This is a fresh install, and a fresh workspace - and I've tried a fresh install + workspace twice now.

I have 8 projects mounted - 1 root and 7 maven submodules.

I have installed the latest m2eclipse + m2e WST plugins from the marketplace, the latest spring IDE, and the latest subclipse 1.8.x

I'm running on Windows 7, and I've tried eclipse on 64bit JDK 6u31 and 7u3. I set a min/max heap of 1/1.5Gb, and a max perm size of 384. I've some other switches to no avail (parallelGC, -clean). I've disabled antivirus.

Essentially, it is completely unusable as an IDE as it stands, which is frustrating for a long-time eclipse user such as myself.

Any help would be highly appreciated.
