I've never even looked at the EclipseSpy code but I guess it listen to
mouse move and get the control under the mouse and change the content
when it's a new control.
If it works with the IDE, I think it could work with any RCP
application: just install the plugin in your RCP app, open the
EclipseSpy view, and it should be all. If it's not working, it's most
likely a bug.

The EclipseSpy is only intended to SWTBot UI, and most likely only
"spies on" the application that hosts it.
