The Update Policy menu has to be enabled by the Customize perspective
menu.  However that menu is not available in E4 right now:

Not sure about this one.

I see the enablement of many buttons being wrong.
The runControl buttons (resume, suspend) are showing
enabled even if nothing is selected, until you press on
them once.

This seems to be a platform issue because it happens
when debugging with the JDT.

I haven't looked for a bugzilla about it yet.
