Eclipse 3.4.2/3.5.* GUI debug unresponsive system error
I have an issue when I hit a breakpoint in eclipse - everything (system included, not just java ui components) is unresponsive. It is not all breakpoints, but many having to do with the UI. (Don't know if it's related.) The problem is when I hit the breakpoint, my system seems unresponsive. The mouse moves smoothly, but no keyboard input breaks out of the system frozen state, and mouse clicks/scroll wheel do nothing. I have conky running in the background and it is updating fine, but nothing is suspicious there. I have to eventually hard power off my computer. Now I've experienced it on multiple machines and am concerned - fedora 10/11, eclipse 3.4.2 and 3.5.*, jdk1.6.0_14 and jdk1.6.0_16. A couple of unique things- on startup I pass -Xmx512m -Xms128m. I can't get super specific (it doesn't seem like a code specific problem, rather environment) but there's some information, if anyone recognizes the error.
To reproduce, I start my debug configuration and activate some UI element where one of several breakpoints is activated.
Has anyone experienced this or know the problem?
