Eclipse bug: buttons don’t work

My Eclipse Galileo has been behaving very strangely, as some buttons have stopped to work after an update of libgtk: I was unable to click on some buttons (it was as if I was never releasing the click, the button was pushed, but not clicked)

I discovered this when I tried to create a New Project, type Java, Next. Hey! Next!

What? I couldn’t click on « next ». However the Enter key still working…;

This is actually a SWT bug with GTK in Eclipse.

Workaround is to export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1

I have Java 1.6 Java HotSpot(TM), Mandriva 2010, desktop on KDE4, GTK 2.2.18 (recently updated my Mandriva).

Thank you norio for the tip!
