Occassionally when I am working on a plug-in, I will hack together a quick
class with a main method and run it from inside the project. I do this
especially to test little SWT or JFace ideas. Usually this works fine and
the Java classpath has all the necessary jars. I tried this today on 3.5RC3
and I got a ClassNotFoundException.

The reason is that a transitive dependency was not available:

myplugin -> org.eclipse.core.databinding ->

I totally agree that the transitive dependency should not be on the compile
time classpath, but why not on the runtime classpath? Maybe this was never
supposed to work, and I just got lucky in the past.
