Problem with Eclipse Context popup

When I try to get the context popup, eclipse is populating all available entries twice. Even though I can live with it, but it is bit annoying. Anybody knows how to get rid of it?

I also deleted the .metadata and also configuration folders but still the same issue pops up. See the attached image. Version is 3.4 RC build.

Appreciate your help.

I see that you have Mylyn installed. Mylyn provides its own, context sensitive proposals. So what you see are the standard JDT proposals, plus the additional Mylyn proposals.

You can configure which proposals you will get in the preferences at Java/Editor/Content Assist/Advanced

Does that help?

Sorry I forgot to follow up on this topic I started. It started working just after rebooting the system. But that is great tip that having MyLyn may give same type of issues. Thanks for that.
