Just wondering, why not set the permgen space in iclipse.ini with the highes value (say 512m)?

You can certainly do that if you have enough spare memory, but what problem are you trying to solve by that? But regardless, 512M seems very high. I recall one or two situation where I had to up it to 128M, but no more than that.
