Thankfully this doesn't happen for me with OpenJDK 7:

java version "1.7.0_b147"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (fedora-0.1.20110803.fc17-x86_64)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)

> 	64-bit
> When running Eclipse with Oracle Java 7 64-bit JRE (b147), Eclipse will 
> crash when it tries to index help documentation that isn't shipped 
> together with its index. The crash happens in Apache Lucene due to a bug 
> in the Oracle VM (
> http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7070134). Oracle 
> confirmed the problem and is planning to ship the fix with the next 
> official update, currently planned for October 18.
> The crash can be avoided by using the -XX:-UseLoopPredicate VM argument 
> (-vmargs -XX:-UseLoopPredicate).
