On Mac 10.7 (Lion), Eclipse crashes on the splash screen when it is launched from the Finder (i.e. using launchd). Bug 353185 (forum won't let me provide a link) describes the problem; however, there has been no activity on the bug since it was reported on 7/27/11 (save other users observing the same problem).

This is a serious problem for my (and other's) RCP apps that has file extensions associated with it. Can anyone on the forum suggest a workaround for the problem?

Some notes from Bug 353185:

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose any file in Finder and select Open With | Other... | Eclipse (you may
need to browse to location of your Eclipse installation)
2. Eclipse crashes and Mac shows a crash report

Specifying -nosplash in eclipse.ini doesn't help (it
just hides the splash screen but the crash still occurs).

Stack trace and crash report are available in the bug report.
