Steven,


Can you (have you) enter a bug in Eclipse/Equinox/Framwork for this?  Please include steps for reproducing and an indication of what you wanted to have happen.  


Jeff

Right, though that doesn't save this from being a bug.

Interestingly, the second one contains a recommendation to do exactly
what I'm trying to do (in comment #19), but lacks any followup to
confirm whether such a setting worked as described in the
documentation.

I appreciate you bringing me up to date on these complaints, as I
hadn't thought through all the prohibitive scenarios
described. However, that's not the crux of my inquiry here.

I'm not asking whether the defaults make sense, or whether I should
want to set this property to some other value. I'm asking why, or
pointing out that the symbolic location mechanism is broken for the
osgi.configuration.area due to the special-case treatment of the
mungeConfigurationLocation() function.
