This topic is testing my memory. Did we ever build the equinox initializer? I don't think so. At any rate I am afraid the initializer code did not migrate over to the new git repositories (at least I am not able to locate it) and it is not being built in the current builds. Is it time to bring this bundle into a git repo and start building it? If so I suggest just placing it in the rt.equinox.bundles repo.
That issue aside: for your question. Do you always use -clean to startup the user's instance of eclipse? If so I am wondering if it is a sorting issue in the order that p2 uses when installing bundles. In theory p2 should be installing bundles in a consistent order when starting from a clean cache. If not then the bundle IDs will change when you run with -clean for the users instance of eclipse.

In Fedora, we used to use Eclipse Equinox initializer to extract all
*.so files from the installation before the Eclipse was actually
installed via rpm. This had some advantages:
* Reduced disk usage for people with tight user.homes or using nfs.
* Ability to run Eclipse when home is mounted as noexec (for security
This is no longer the case, because I can find those libraries
find /usr/lib64/eclipse/configuration -name *.so
in my home:
find ~/.eclipse -name *.so
The first thing that I've noticed is that bundle numbers had changed
(and they do actually change if I call eclipse -clean, although not
What may be the cause of this behavior? How to get back to the good ol'
behavior where *.so files were not duplicated?
Interesting documentation is:
