I really love working with the Eclipse ResourceBundle Editor (http://sourceforge.net/projects/eclipse-rbe/).






But as of today, I was receiving this error:

I uninstalled the plugin and reinstalled it (I'm using version 0.7.7 by the way ...), but still, Eclipse was showing me that stupid stacktrace.
After looking in the code (check here), I noticed I was opening my messages.properties in the target folder !!! I know, stupid, but this is what happens if you use CTRL + R, without checking the full path to the file...
