#4 Indigo crash on Linux

Other (1)

On some Linux distributions, with Eclipse Indigo, the content assistance and the spell checking proposal crash the complete IDE.
When they appear, error log files indicates an Eclipse error using the WebKit renderer, therefore, it could be interesting to change the way tooltips are displayed to avoid the usage of the internal web browser.

    The bug seems to come from Indigo, not the plug-in.
    Eclipse Indigo crashes when using an internal browser, probably due to a version conflict with native libraries.

    The bug can be avoided by using another kind of tooltip presentation (any SWT widgets except Browser)

    Bug fixed in the develop branch.
    Browser was replaced by StyledText in tool tips.

    Nearly ready for 1.0.7 : "Insert sample" link works on mouse hover but not with the contextual assistant.
