[cross-project-issues-dev] Problem in M6 with incorrect workspace being opened
Cross-posting from eclipse-dev, since this issue
affects people running Eclipse+WTP.
is a bug in 3.2 M6 that causes Eclipse to be opened with an incorrect workspace
location when certain other plugins are installed (WTP, Mylar, and probably
others). I just wanted to send a note here because many people are coming
across the problem, and it has alarming symptoms for end users because it
appears that their workspace has been wiped out. Rest assurred that this
does not cause loss of data, and there is an easy workaround to the problem by
using the -data command line argument to specify your workspace location. The
bug has also been fixed in the N20060407 build, which despite being a nightly
build is fairly stable because we are approaching our first 3.2 release
candidate next week.
