I think that could be related to

This bugs dependencies show current limitation with 4.2-based
application https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=385527 ,
mainly because of API changes
- Some menus can't be resolved
- The Toolbar doesn't work
- The framework cannot start an application that does not use the

There are no such steps. Eclipse 4 is not yet fully supported. SWT
concepts are still working, but some Eclipse ones are broken.
We need more contributors to work on this.

The recording feature has never worked actually. But I'm currently
working on a new one. I'll keep the community in touch (hopefully by the
end of the week).

SWTBot does not have yet support for Nebula specific components. Some
Nebula widgets directly rely on SWT widget, so they don't need
additional stuff in SWTBot. For the other ones, once again,
contributions are hightly welcome
The project is very open to feedback and contributions. So if you can
find some time to fix some of the blocking issues, it will help the
project to release an Eclipse4-friendly version.
