#178 Eclipse Interactions Pane nonfunctional in Mac OS X 10.5?


As far as I can tell, when I upgraded to Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard", the DrJava Eclipse Plugin's interactions pane has ceased to function.

The interactions pane does not appear, and when I go to Window -> Show View -> Other... and select DrJava -> Interactions Pane, an error message appears in Eclipse and my console gets dumped with stack traces (which I have attached).

I have tried reinstalling Eclipse, using a different Workspace, reinstalling the plugin. None of my attempts have been sucessful. DrJava's interactions pane (and the DrJava.app) still continue to work.

Is this a known/reproducable bug? Or is my computer just messed up?

Thanks for any assistance!

The punchline of the stack traces are:
