I have never seen this myself. I tend to think it has to be an
Eclipse issue. When weird things like this happen, I usually ask
myself a question like "If I wanted to write code to make this problem
happen intentionally could I?" I think the answer here is No.
Therefore, it would seemingly be an Eclipse bug.

I am certainly open to suggestions to fix if others see it.
