        I've tried the given command line arguments. They're not working or I'm not
using them correctly.

SETUP:
        * the development server is called "dev.pl.internal".
        * eclipse, with all the plugins, is stored on dev in /usr/share/eclipse/
        * for simplicity, each user on the dev server has a symlink in their home
directory, pointing to /usr/share/eclipse/

RUNNING IT:
        * normally, to connect & run eclipse, I run:
                ssh -Xf danf@216.239.10.106 "~/eclipse/eclipse"
        * For the command line arguments, I ran this:
                ssh -Xf danf@216.239.10.106 "~/eclipse/eclipse --keyring --configuration"
        * To be safe, I also ran (along with about 3-4 other combinations of
arguments)::
                ssh -Xf danf@216.239.10.106 "~/eclipse/eclipse --keyring=~/_eclipse/.keyring
--configuration=~/_eclipse"

        Every single time, I get an error about the workspace already being in use.
I created a copy of the eclipse directory, and use an rsync dry-run to show
me the files that changed:::

----------------------------[snip]---------------------------
cartman:/usr/share# rsync -av eclipse/ TMP_eclipse/ --dry-run
building file list ... done
./
configuration/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs
configuration/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.manager/
configuration/org.eclipse.osgi/.manager/
---------------------------[/snip]---------------------------

The single file that changed, regardless (apparently) of the command-line args
given to eclipse, was configuration/.settings/org.eclipse.ui.ide.prefs.
I've attached the diff, which clearly shows that the "recent workspaces" gets
transferred between myself (danf) and another developer (taco). Any ideas?
