Starting up the console on Mac OS 10.5.4, I get the following error:
import sys; print '%s %s' % (sys.executable or sys.platform, sys.version)
Failed to read servers response: Connection refused
The only exception is when I start the pydev console as the first thing after starting eclipse, but the error occurs again in any future attempts to start it. After showing the error message, the console works fine, but there is no possibility to get a session for the current file etc.
No firewall enabled (but doing so does not make a difference).
BootLoader constants: OS=macosx, ARCH=x86, WS=carbon, NL=en_US

This info message that shows upon start up may be related:
