glibc is reporting to you about the error, FYI you can control its
behavior (ignore, warn, abort) with the MALLOC_CHECK_ variable. See
"man malloc" and scroll to the last paragraph. Maybe running as root
operated under a different malloc mode?
Looks like maybe your file
is the common thread...
I think the only way to really know exactly where it's crashing is to
build everything involved with debug symbols and debug the coredump or
use valgrind or something like that. If Eclipse is a binary install
then I guess report it to whoever makes it (I don't know anything
about Java or Eclipse).
