Is anyone running Eclipse on Linux and finding that it is NOT working like a dream ?

me for one. I got so bogged down to figure out the GUI that my project got delayed.

It's a bit slow, but not severely so.
try running JBuilder on a Celeron 400 with 196MB RAM on Linux and compare with Eclipse. You'll find Eclipse is faster (though slower than it would have been under Windows)
SWT performance under Linux is well understood to lag behind performance on Windows. This is due to the architecture of the Linux GUI implementation which prevents the optimisations used in the Windows components.

I have tried 2.1.1 for a few days now and get lots of crashing. I'm running Debian that's up-to-date and very stable.

hmm, which version?
I'm using the testing branch of Debian and no trouble so far (haven't tried it on stable or unstable, stable doesn't run on my hardware and unstable is too risky).

My original install was 3.0r1 (Potato). However, my sources.list file is loaded with unstable links, so it's probably safe to call it an unstable box.
deb http: (local server....swcp.com...)
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main non-free contrib
deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
The system is completely stable, except for Eclipse... that's the only app I have that crashes.

Actually, I've been pretty happy. Except that I wish they'd enable printing.

What's Debian and Potato ?
Are these Linux variants ? like Red Hat and Mandrake ?
