Quite a few people in our dev team (size 20ish java devs) are experiencing the seemingly well-known "Unhandled event loop exception" when we click between editors and other panes within the Eclipse window. Some people have had some success by installing the WindowBuilder plugin and setting the WB editor as their default editor for Java files, but most of us still get the error regularly. It doesn't seem memory related because you can get it straight away after a cold boot; i.e. it doesn't "work for a while". I think it's likely video-related, because we also get similar video glitch symptoms that have been reported by others, e.g. tab names disappearing until you hover over them etc.

Our video card (most of us I think) is AMD Radeon HD 6450 and we're running 64-bit Windows 7. I've tried shutting down various processes that sound related to the video card, but to no avail.

The error is reproducible on a brand new standard Eclipse J2EE install.

I've searched a lot on this because it affects our day-to-day work so much, but I can't find a solution. Is there something I'm not doing that could workaround this?
