I am using Eclipse 3.3 ("Europa"). Periodically, Eclipse takes an inordinately long time (perhaps forever) to start up. The only thing I can see in the Eclipse log is:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.resources 2 10035 2008-10-16 09:47:34.801
!MESSAGE The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.
Googling reveals someone's suggestion that I remove the folder:
This does not appear to have helped.
Short of starting with a new workspace (something which I am not keen to do, as it takes me hours to set up all my projects again properly), is there a way to make Eclipse start up properly?
