[eclipse-dev] Eclipse creates runtime-workspace in common area

I've come across a problem with Eclipse trying to create a directory
under its install dir.

When you have a plug-in project and select Run > Run As > Run-time
workbench, a directory called runtime-workspace is created beneath the
directory where Eclipse itself is installed.  Clearly, this cannot
work on a multi-user system where that directory is shared between
users, but I'm not sure where the runtime-workspace directory should

I would have expected any scratch area that Eclipse creates must be
below the data area specified by "-data".  This patch puts the
runtime-workspace there.
