I've been using eclipse (the one bundled in ADT) extensively for about a year and had no problems. But from yesterday, without any particular change (no eclipse update, no new plugins, ..., EDIT: however, I updated Firefox yesterday) it started crashing. If crashes a few seconds after I run it.

I even reset workspace, but got no success.

I was using opedjdk 7, reverted back to openjdk 6, again with no success.

Here's the console output when the crash happens:

And here's the more detailed error log it generates:

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 in x86-64 architecture. ADT version is v22.0.1

    Yes, no crash for 3 hours. Before this, it was crashing 5-10 seconds after starting.
