I did something that broke the keyboard shortcut command+F (search in eclipse). I checked the keyboard bindings in System Preferences and couldn't find anything for that shortcut.

As a workaround, I re-mapped search to ctrl-F and that works. And ideas on what could be going on?

it gets better. Command F does work in Safari. So it's a global binding problem.

I don't know how I broke it in Eclipse, but at least the workaround works!

Twenty years ago, I had a broken keyboard with no Escape key.  To this day I'm often in vi, and still use "Control-[" which was my work-around!      
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
