Eclipse 3.6, x86_64 and Gnome proxy support

I recently took the plunge back into 64-bit Ubuntu after I originally ditched it two and a half years ago mostly because of desktop Java stuff. I am now using Eclipse 3.6M2 so that compatibility with GTK+ 2.18 is good, but I’ve encountered a problem with native proxy support: my proxy settings were completely ignored from within Eclipse. I have contributed a (very simple) patch to Eclipse’s Bugzilla and it will hopefully appear in Eclipse 3.6M4.
