Has anyone noticed everything they do in Java is slow after updating from 1.7.0 to 1.7.0_02? I have noted many issue in java - Known Tomcat 6.0 and JDK 1.7.0_02 issues? - Stack Overflow (if I am allowed to post a link). It ranges across everything I do, starting/stopping tomcat, eclipse functionality like opening a file, compiling the workspace, validating projects, anything refreshing like that, etc. I've had to increase the timeouts on server starts and stops (doubling them).

Something must be up?

And I couldn't keep using JDK 1.7.0 because it crashes Eclipse (in Help Contents).
