Could you put this in eclipse bugzilla?  And send me the bug number? :-)

I think this sounds pretty reasonable; I'd like to put this same
patch in the Red Hat version of eclipse.  Also, from what I've seen,
changes like this get more traction with if they show up
in bugzilla...

Yeah, this is an important one, I voted for it.

There's another one you might consider voting for, that I think is
important to Linux hackers, and that is getting robust permission
support in eclipse.  E.g., with an unpatched eclipse, if you check out
gcc, all the configure scripts wind up non-executable.  We've hacked
around this locally, but eclipse deserves a better fix...
