When using the eclipse auto update you have to disable the eclipse update sites, to work arround a current problem in eclipse.
See screenshot select "what and where" to disable.

JavaScript editor in RC 2 has a problem with more than 1,500 line .js files. Performance of hover function over variables degrades as you move down a large .js file and stops working altogether at about 1,750-2,000 lines. Code completion does the same thing. It quits working as you move down a large .js file after about 1,750 lines also. 1 sec for for both near the top, 5 secs for both at about 1500 lines, and after about 2000 lines in the file both fail to work at all. This is a problem for us as we have two core files with over 5,500 lines. This was not an issue in previous releases.
