Eclipse dies on start up org.eclipse.mylyn.tasks.ui

Having a bug that blocks Eclipse from starting is frustating. Solving it is emotional. Bug is : Eclipse doesn’t start and dies showing org.eclipse.mylyn.tasks.ui.

Searching Google i found an article talking about this bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=388170 .

Reading it we found the solution to our problem and the cause of the bug.

Cause seems to be SVN Tool Kit, and solution or workaround is starting eclipse with the option -Djava.awt.headless=true
