Slightly OT: Strange Eclipse Error -- Giant Cursor, Blank File

    No answer yet on the Eclipse newsgroup for this one, so I'm posting
    here....

    When I open eclipse, my .java files are not being displayed. The file
    is simply blank and bluish (as if it's been selected), with what
    appears to be a very tall (as tall as the entire display area)
    flashing cursor on the left. However, the outline view of the file is
    visible and correct, so the file is being "read" in that sense.

    If I hit a key (backspace, eg), the screen turns white (unselected)
    and I get an error popup: "An SWT error has occured." The popup also
    informs me that the workbench is going to shut down.

    Has anyone seen this problem before? How can it be solved?

    Thanks,
    cpp

    I haven't.

    Did you try installing a new copy of Eclipse?
