This has been working reasonably well for a while. About an hour ago I tried to switch to a different task, which usually takes a few seconds to do. This time, it chugged for a while, showed the rotating circle cursor, and then greyed out the background. I let this sit for a while until I finally gave up and killed the process.
I then tried to start up again, and the splash screen got to "Loading org.eclipse.emf.edit" and then didn't go any further. My CPU got to about 12% and just stayed there.
So, after waiting a few minutes for it to advance past this, I killed the process again. Still no progress past this point.
I've tried running with "-clean". I've tried rebooting.
I then noticed this note: https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/823236/ .
Deleting the ".*Lock" files made no difference.
I then tried to delete the ".fileTable*" files, first saving them in a tar file. This was even worse. The splash screen never even showed the progress bar, and was spinning up to 70% of the CPU for a long time.
Unfortunately, while doing this I accidentally deleted the tar file containing the saved copies of the ".fileTable*" files.
At this point I figured my installation was completely hosed, so I ran the installer and installed Eclipse again. I started it up specifying the workspace I was using. SAME RESULT. I killed the process again.
Finally, I restarted Eclipse again, specifying a new workspace. That worked. Now to reinstall all my bloody plugins and reopen all my bloody projects. What a mess.
