I found something that worked, but there has to be a better way.
Clearly this problem is at the Java level. I could only figure out
how to fix it for you at the Eclipse level.

Right-click on Eclipse.app and choose Show Package Contents. Then
edit the eclipse.ini file which is in the MacOS folder. Add this line
to the end of the file. Save and restart Eclipse.

-Duser.country=GB

I found some old bug reports via Google, but no answers on how to set
this as your default for Java. I'd expect this to be a common problem
so it might be worth investing some more time in Google.
