Eclipse XUL 2.0 workaround

In the recent Firefox 4 update the XUI library was upgraded to 2.0, so now Eclipse must use it too.
Alas for some reason it makes Eclipse 3.6.2-1 crash when trying to render a tooltip.

Please, don't try to downgrade the XUl version yet, instead use the following workaround:
Append this:
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true
to your eclipse.ini configuration file, at the bottom.

Afterwords just install the webkit package:
for Linux:
install webkit;
for window$ it's more complicated :S (as expected), guide.

For more info of the bug, visit the bug page.

Now just restart Eclipse ;) !

happy coding
:) !!!.
