I just switched a laptop (running NetBSD/i386 -current, XFree86 4.5.0)
from Blackbox to dwm. Everything works fine, except both Java programs
I have installed: [1]eclipse 3.2.0, using Sun JRE 5.0 for Linux with
NetBSD's compat_linux(8), and [2]SQuirrel SQL Client 2.2 final, using
either the same JRE as for eclipse or native Sun JRE for NetBSD.

While the problem I'm having with SQuirrel was [3]reported before, the
one with eclipse is not (AFAIR):

After starting eclipse the splash screen doesn't disappear, and CPU
usage rises to 100% (one of the many java processes uses about 50%,
and XFree86 the other 50%). Eclipse then seems not to respond to mouse
and keyboard events anymore and I have to kill it...

Both programs work fine on the same system under Blackbox or twm.
Furthermore it doesn't matter whether they are started floating or

Cheers, Jukka
