[kaffe] Eclipse and strange ClassCastException

Did anybody try eclipse recently?

When trying to run the eclipse-SDK-2.1-linux-gtk release (make sure that
your java.version in System.csays "1.3" otherwise it won't try to run at
all) I get a strange ClassCastException (workspace/.metainfo/.log file):

java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError: [exception was java.lang.ClassCastException: can't cast `org/apache/xerces/parsers/StandardParserConfiguration' to `org/apache/xerces/xni/parser/XMLParserConfiguration']
        at org.eclipse.core.internal.plugins.RegistryLoader.processManifestFile(RegistryLoader.java:89)

The strange thing is that at that point of the code there is no such
cast (the eclipse "binary" release comes with complete source code). I
tried a kaffe build without the xml and jaxp files but that wasn't it.

The StandardParserConfiguration class implements the
XMLPullParserConfiguration interface which extends the
XMLParserConfiguration interface.
