Eclipse broken in Karmic Koala

Upgrading to Karmic Koala has been a pain. The version of GTK+ used by Koala has exposed a bug in how SWT uses GTK+, apparently. It manifests in dialog buttons sometimes not working - you hover the mouse over a button but clicking doesn't work.

Anyhoo, to fix, you can export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1 (in a startup script, say), to get the proper behaviour back. Apparently to be fixed in 3.5.2, no idea when that's due.
