Since that's a Platform/SWT bug, you'll want to get the update site for
the 3.7.x maintenance stream, add that in your Install New Software
dialog, and update SWT from there.
You might find it here: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Project_Update_Sites
But I'd ask on the SWT forum group to make sure you get the right thing.
