    Hi, I'm running Eclipse 3.1 with Sun JDK 1.5 on Win2K. After installing Beyond CVS plugin, and going to menu Window->Preferences->External Tools Launcher, I get an error dialog entitled 'Preference Page Creation Problems' with 'Reason: Plug-in "org.eclipse.externaltools" was unable to instantiate class "org.eclipse.externaltools.preferences.MainPreferencePage". When I click the Details button, the dialog displays 'java.lang.NullPointerException'. I don't see any records of this event or traceback in my workspace log.

    Ideas?
