I changed the environment variable to APR_ICONV1_PATH, pointing to the
subversion 1.4.3 (apache 2.2.x version) iconv folder.
And, yes, eclipse does not crash anymore :)

Just to correct my statement above: eclipse crashes not at startup, but
when a svn specific command is used from subclipse, e.g. update.

I will check tomorrow if this fixes the crashes with trac, too.

Great! Thanks!
