|[platform-swt-dev] Text using SWT.MULTI style causes eclipse to crash on Enterprise Linux 5.4|
I am using the release version of eclipse 3.6 helios.
I have the following configuration of linux:
bash-3.2$ uname -a && cat /etc/*release
Linux dadvml0178 2.6.18-184.108.40.206.1.el5xen #1 SMP Wed Sep 2 22:48:20 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Carthage)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4 (Tikanga)
If i create 2 SWT Text controls using the SWT.MULTI style, i see that eclipse crashes silently without any log messages (in the .log file or under the eclipse folder) after a while.
new Text(composite, SWT.MULTI | SWT.H_SCROLL | SWT.V_SCROLL |SWT.WRAP);
I don't have this problem on the following configuration:
bash-3.00$ uname -a && cat /etc/*release
Linux dadvml0046 2.6.9-220.127.116.11.1.ELxenU #1 SMP Tue May 19 04:48:26 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Enterprise Linux Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (October Update 8)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 8)
Please let me know if this is a known issue or suggest a workaround for this issue. I have plenty of code which uses SWT.MULTI and i don't want to change that code.
