See if this solution works for you:
On a side-note, one of our Adobe teammates (Scott) contributed major chunks of SWT code to eclipse.org for the Cocoa Galileo project this year. So we're definitely committed to supporting Cocoa in future release - just won't be ready for that in time for FB 4.
Cheers for the link,
unfortunately that link prescribes I use the cocoa version of eclipse (which is the only known solution to the problem). This is of course incompatible with beta 2.
The beta 2 is buggy as hell and I can see it's going to make my life a misery.. is it possible to get beta 1 back? The download has dissapeared, I'd go back in an instant if you give me a url.
Clearly even beta 2 buggy as it is better than going back to the unstable and awfully unusable fb3 - it's ironic that the flashbuilder beta's are far superior to the flexbuilder I actually paid for.
I am using Eclipse on MacBook with 10.6.1 with x-code and have no issues. My setup is
Eclipse 3.4.2 (Build: M20090211-1700)
and I have FB and CFB beta 2 install as plugins on the local version of eclipse not the bundled version.
I haven't ran into the issue you are describing. This is a fresh install as of yesterday, and I had a test run on mac min with 10.6 and that was fine as well (as far as the issue you discribed)
p.s here is the link from where I downloaded my version of eclipse, I am sure you got it from the same location.
