How to Fix Eclipse BIRT Designer 3.7.1 Crash when Prevewing Reports in Linux 64-bit

When previewing a report or running the report in embedded web browser, Eclipse Reporting / BIRT 3.7.1 running in 64-bit Linux crashes with only the following messages:

No bp log location saved, using default.
[000:000] Browser XEmbed support present: 1
[000:000] Browser toolkit is Gtk2.
[000:000] Using Gtk2 toolkit
[000:000] Warning(optionsfile.cc:22): Load: Could not open file
[000:000] No bp log location saved, using default.

[000:273] Browser toolkit is Gtk2.
[000:273] Using Gtk2 toolkit
Opened debug file '/home/ceefour/tmp/mozdebug'

It happens with all reports, even with a blank one.

To reproduce:
  1. Launch Eclipse for Java & Report Developers 3.7.1 64-bit in Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit
  2. Create a new report
  3. On the blank report, click Preview tab ...... crash
It is reported as Eclipse Bugzilla Bug 362416.

Here's a workaround to fix it:

./eclipse -vmargs -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla

This solves the crashing problem entirely. So it's not a fix but a temporary workaround until the BIRT developers come up with a fix to this problem permanently.

The (upstream) Eclipse bug was marked fixed as of 3.7.1 however it still requires the manual command-line argument to avoid the crash in Eclipse Reporting/BIRT 3.7.1.

  2. I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 and it crashes although I use the commented workaround. It may be that there is no "mozilla" browser installed. After that I installed seamonkey, but it still crashes.
