While looking for clues, I looked through the plugins using the Help

Yeah, I think the problem is that the feature validation doesn't take
into account the split install (use of .eclipseextension, etc.). Ben
Konrath (CCd) would know more about this.
Does this mean that plugins from eclipse.org
and other sites that
built specifically for Fedora Eclipse won't work, or does this only
concern Fedora built plugins?
Plugins from elsewhere should function fine in interpreted mode (ie. no
gcj-compiled bits). If there are bugs, they're either class library
bugs or interpreter (gij) bugs.
I don't think your crashes are caused by the split install.
