I have Eclipse Kepler 4.3 and installed WindowBuilder which seems to work properly on WindowsXP Home, Version 2002 SP 3
on Pentium D @2.8 GHz 1.5 GB RAM
But I can't close a preview or exit from run without using Task Manager to shut it down.
Can anyone tell me why not?

WindowBuilder works fine with Kepler 4.3 (and, in fact, is shipped with it).
The bug report you reference is for GWT Designer and the GPE, not WindowBuilder. From the looks of it, GWT Designer is probably out of sync with the WindowBuilder Kepler release (e.g., old GWTD code running with newer WB code). A GWTD update of some sort is probably required.
That is good to know. I've updated my post. I also tested the Swing Designer on Eclipse 4.3 and it worked fine!
I wasn't aware that GWT Designer and WindowBuilder were diverging or at least not being maintained by the same team. So that is helpful to know. Of course, from what I've been hearing lately, I'm not sure that there is even a GWT Designer team. It looks like the GPE team will fix bugs there occasionally, but their focus lately appears to have been on GAE features.
I was able to get GWT Designer to do more than throw an exception by updating the WindowBuilder Code and WindowBuilder XML Core components. But that made it unstable and opening the design tab would crash Eclipse.
Thank you very much Eric! You have been extremely helpful. I searched their project pages for contribution guidelines, but found none. I do see that you can get a read-only version of the source code via Subversion though.
