Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] - internal error "updating metadata"

You are right, this is caused by the selfhosting bundle trying to react
(poorly) to workspace changes...
Once this occured it is likely that the metadata repo and artifact repo
representing your workspace and target platform contain stale content.
You can recover from this state by:
- going to the console and stopping the selfhosting bundle
- going in <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/ and deleting the
org.eclipse.equinox.prov.selfhosting folder
- going to the console and starting the selfhosting bundle

Is anyone else seeing these errors in their working IDE?
For example, I just got this error while syncing with the repository.

An internal error occurred during: "Updating metadata".
java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException

I believe this is a self hosting issue (keeping metadata up to date with
the workspace), but thought I better post just to make sure.  When we get
these errors, should we be cleaning out the metadata generated for a self
hosting launch, and if so, exactly what needs to be deleted?

thanks,
