Best way is to download the GEF-SDK download zip. It includes the source and
will be automatically integrated into the Eclipse IDE.

Nope. All removing JADclipse did was remove the flakiness around
opening .class files. Now I consistently get "Class File Editor"
editors with "Source not found". But there's a tip there:
The JAR of this classfile belongs to the container 'Plug-in Dependencies'
To configure the source attachment, go directly to the corresponding
configuration page (fore example for for JREs go to 'installed JREs'
page in preferences).
Ah... I figured it out: since I need to use some other OSGi bundles I
was running with PDE target platform set to a directory containing the
eclipse runtime rsync'd in, as well as my extra bundles.
So I needed to do a new rsync of the eclipse runtime (including GEF),
and _then_ I had debugging.
