Thanks for your explanations, Mark.

In case it might help someone: another way to make Eclipse skip
eclipse.ini seems to be to rename the eclipse binary.
I once moved "eclipse" to "eclipse.bin" and created a shell script named
"eclipse" which set LD_LIBRARY_PATH and then started "eclipse.bin". It
took me some time to figure out that some problems I had afterwards were
caused by Eclipse not reading eclipse.ini.
I have not investigated if in this case something like "eclipse.bin.ini"
is looked for.
