Both Eclipse 4.6.2 and 4.6.3 don't persist recent workspaces on macOS Sierra.|
At the first time of launching Eclipse,
Eclipse suggests me to use "/Users/USERNAME/Documents/workspace" as a workspace.
Then I changed it to other workspace (here, assuming that "/Users/USERNAME/workspaces/app1"), Eclipse will of course launch with no problem.
After closing Eclipse and rebooting OS (AFAIK, rebooting is not a requirement for this problem, but rebooting always cause the problem!), when I again launch Eclipse, then recent workspaces are empty and I'm again suggested to use "/Users/USERNAME/Documents/workspace".
AFAIK, this problem is not caused on MacOSX El Capitan.
And from my investigation, many "org.eclipse.platform_4.6.3_NNNNNNN_macosx_cocoa_x86_64" are created under ~/.eclipse for some reasons.
$ ls -l ~/.eclipse ~

Anybody help me to fix this problem?
