If this is the case... then we should just be using SWTBot.

Robin, can you revive this patch and get it queued for inclusion?

We have basically *NO* tests for the EGit side of the house, and this
cannot continue.  UI testing is hard.  Some of the stuff we have been
breaking recently is in core and can be easily tested with headless
JUnit tests as its just function invocations being validated.  But UI
testing is also useful in some contexts, and SWTBot should help here.

Basically, forget my earlier rejection of SWTBot.  If SWTBot is
developed on Mac we should be able to make it work.
