I noticed that on recent versions of Eclipse and Ubuntu, Eclipse’s Open Type dialog (Ctrl-Shift-T) often freezes for an annoying period of time as soon as you start typing your class name.

A temporary solution I found is to make sure that gail is not used by simply renaming the file:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Feb 4 16:18 libgailutil-3.so.0 -> libgailutil-3.so.0.0.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35440 Apr 16 2012 libgailutil-3.so.0.0.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 31304 Mar 26 2012 libgailutil.so.18.0.1.OFF
