[cross-project-issues-dev] Switch from Luna RC2 to RC3 fails all our Tycho run UI tests: Known issue?


hope cross-project-issues is the right list for this, but for us it's a
huge issue (none of our builds pass) and I am wondering whether any
other project has encountered this as well:

We use <> as update site in
our builds. Now, as of today, i.e., the promotion of RC3 from staging to
said update site, Tycho fails to execute all of our UI tests. I have
opened Bug 436858 [1] to document my findings so far, but the short
version is that the UI tests all fail with the tycho-surefire-plugin
saying some along the lines of

> An error has occurred. See the log file .../target/work/data/.metadata/.log.

with the log then containing

and possibly a complaint about an invalid thread access (SWTException).

Has anyone else seen this?
