    Default Selection/highlight delete problem when editing

    Hi,

    In Eclipse 3.3, sometimes I will be editing a file and suddenly the behavior will change. The word I am editing will become selected/highlighted, such that if I type another character it will delete the word instead of appending to it. This may only happen in Java, and perhaps it is some key combination I'm hitting which triggers it. I have to restart Eclipse to make it go away.

    Any ideas?

    This is just a guess, but check the auto-complete settings in Preferences...
