&nbsp;1. Known Issues
1 Known Issues</h3>
1.1 Available Colors on 8-bit Linux</h4>
Typically, in Gnome Linux installs running with 8 bitplain visuals (i.e. 256 color mode), before the
Eclipse application is started, you already do not have any free colors. This may mean that Eclipse
is unable to allocate the default widget background color causing it to display a white background.
The functionality, however, is not affected.
1.2 Printing Support</h4>
The X printing extension implementation on Linux is currently disabled because
it can take up to 7 seconds to determine that the X print server is not running.
Until this is rectified, <code>Printer.getPrinterList()</code> will always return
an empty array on the Linux platform.</dd>
1.3 Disposing in a Focus Event</h4>
Applications should not dispose widgets in focus changing events. Doing so on Motif may cause Eclipse to terminate,
since Motif accesses the disposed widget within their internal focus change event handler.
Similar but less serious issues exist on Windows such that occasionally an SWT exception can be thrown.
1.4 List and ComboBox on Windows NT</h4>
On Windows NT only, you should avoid creating items in a List or ComboBox with strings longer than 1000 characters.
Doing so may result in a General Protection Fault. This has been fixed in more recent versions of Windows.
1.5 BiDi Support</h4>
The StyledText widget now provides bidirectional language support for Hebrew and Arabic locales.
Currently, this support is available only on win32, and has several known problems. It should be
considered to be a preliminary implementation only.
1.6 Cursor constructor arguments</h4>
In the constructor <code>Cursor(Device device, ImageData source, ImageData mask, int hotspotX, int hotspotY)</code>,
when both a source and mask argument are specified (i.e. mask is not null), the meaning of the two arguments is
reversed. That is, the "mask" argument should be the source image and the "source" argument should be the
mask image. This problem was discovered too late in the development cycle to be fixed for R1.0. The intent is to
fix this in a future release, potentially by introducing a new more general constructor.
1.7 ToolBar on Windows</h4>
On Windows, you must create all tool bars with the FLAT style bit set. If you do not do this,
the "hot" (rollover) images of <em>all</em> toolbars may display incorrectly.
This will be fixed in a future release.
1.8 Non ASCII strings on Linux</h4>
On Linux RedHat 6.2 only, you will not be able to display text that contains non
ASCII characters. This limitation is not present on Linux RedHat 7.1 or higher.
1.9 Using J9 VM on Photon and AIX</h4>
On Photon and AIX, the SWT library will not be found when running with
the J9 VM (version 1.5). This is a bug in the J9 classes library. You
can workaround this problem by adding the SWT library directory to your
load library path.
