When using a custom product configuration, the handles which allow users to drag and drop toolbar items disappear. A number of arbitrary spaces appear too- see attached customProduct.png. When launched with standard eclipse application, the spaces disappear and the handles are present-

see the bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=438115 which has a sample custom product and set of images which show spaces.
attachedeclipseApplicationWithDraggableSeparators.png. The zip contains the custom product- it is a bare-bones product configuration.

Is this a bug in eclipse or am i doing something wrong.

P.S: I logged that bug Smile

Adding this property to the product extension in plugin.xml seems to fix this issue:
<property name="applicationCSSResources"
value="platform:/plugin/org.eclipse.platform/images/">
</property>
My question is if this is a valid fix and if it is, why does it work? I tried debugging by putting a conditional breakpoint in Product.getProperty() to halt when the key is applicationCSSResources but the breakpoint was never reached. Could someone please explain how this property is consumed?
PS: I have also posted this comment in the bug- apologies for cross posting
