I am experiencing a problem when launching and shutting down Eclipse.
The error messages are:

Problems occurred while trying to save the state of the workbench.

Could not write workspace metadata 'C:/eclipse/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.root/269.tree'.

Sometimes the Eclipse even shows some deleted breakpoints also.
The Eclipse vesion I am using is: 3.3.1.
The O/S is: WindowsXP

How can I fix this problem.
Thanks in advance.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
