Eclipse 3.2 or 3.3 run configurations problem...

I've encountered a problem in Eclipse 3.2 and and 3.3 where one of my Java application run configurations fails. It does not matter if I'm running it or debugging it.

This run configuration has a longer classpath than several I've done in the past causing the command line to be vary long. Eclipse is encountering an error because of this and it seams that Eclipse may be truncating the command line because if a put a println statement as the first statement in the main it never gets executed.

Here are my questions:
1) Has anyone encounter a problem with Eclipse truncating a long run configuration?
2) Is there a way to get Eclipse to show me the exact command it is executing in the console.
3) I had a hard time finding a dedicated Eclipse forum. Does anyone have a link to a dedication Eclipse IDE users forum?

What exact error are you encountering? You *might* be able to get more information from the "errors" view (which basically is a viewer for Eclipse's log file).
