I just installed Eclipse Ganymede on Leopard, and within minutes noticed weird screen artifacts and GUI problems. The welcome page had these big tooltips that were always chopped off. I’d show a picture here, but I can’t figure out how to get back to that page.
I then tried installing the Terracotta plugin, and eventually see this screen:
Although no plugin apears, it really is there…somewhere behind the broken GUI. I clicked next and proceeded through the installation successfully.
Other Eclipse screens show similar screen artifacts. For example, check out the weird blue button at the end of the Description field:
That is a real button…you can click on it, but I’m not sure what it does.
Do these Eclipse Ganymede problems exist on other platforms? Will porting SWT to Cocoa fix these artifacts?
