Using Eclipse 3.7.2 with PyDev plugin on Ubuntu 12.04.2:
When I go into Help Contents and enter anything into the Search text field, the Search Results window says, "Indexing...", "0% complete" and never finishes.
The terminal window where I started Eclipse, prints messages repeatedly with text like:
11:20:01.903 [20682837@qtp-31607536-29 - /help/advanced/searchView.jsp?searchWord=bookmarks&maxHits=500] DEBUG org.mortbay.log - servlet holder=org.eclipse.equinox.http.jetty.internal.HttpServerManager$InternalHttpServiceServlet-31988659
Also, if I click on the menu entry Help:Search, an error dialog pops up with the message:
"'Indexing Help...' has encountered a problem.", "Error while indexing" and the "Details" button shows: "Errors while indexing" "invalid format:"
Does anybody know why this is happening and if there is a fix or workaround?
