This is a very good point. If I had remembered this, I would have been much
more skeptical of my permissions hypothesis. I also did a test of turning
off UAC (with reboot) and it did not help.

Previously, I had tried attaching src to my IDE to see if I could figure out
the problem, but the IDE couldn't show the values of variables when I
"stepped into" eclipse.jar. After the UAC idea failed, I realized I had to
create a Java project from src. That revealed what appears to be a bug in
EclipseEngineOptions.setEclipseDir()...somehow, when commandline
arg -Declipse.directory="C:\Program Files\ECLiPSe 6.1\" is read-in via
System.getProperties() [line 113], and then processed [lines 153 and 295],
the final double-quote char is left on the end:

   "C:\\Program Files\\ECLiPSe 6.1""

That causes the error I reported, because then in OutOfProcessEclipse on
line 281, cmdarray2[0] is set to "C:\\Program Files\\ECLiPSe
6.1"\\lib\\x86_64_nt\\eclipse.exe" (quote in the middle of the string),
causing the call to fail: eclipseProcess =
Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmdarray2);

When I edit setEclipseDir() to be this, it works:

  public void setEclipseDir(File eclipseDir)
  {
  String s = eclipseDir.getAbsolutePath();
  if (s != null) s = s.replace("\"", "");
  this.eclipseDir = s;
  }

btw, there is also a fatal compilation bug in EclipseMapColourer.java:
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog() takes 5 arguments, and it seems the '+' at
the end of line 177 should be ',' instead.
