Eclipse is WAY outdated on debian. Even the unstable release ships a basically unmodified version since 3 years.
So today I decided to remove the ancient version -- which did not start anyway -- and try the new nice release from eclipse.org:
And, hey... It works like a charm. The only downside is, that it will run in a local directory in your home directory. But that could be fixed my installing in /opt and including it into the default path.
