“An internal error occurred while showing an internal error”
It seems funny but since it is an error message, it will definitely irritate you when it starts appearing from time to time. However, it came by me when I was working with eclipse Helios.
It is what reminded me of a well known quote, “Before you can understand recursions you first need to understand recursions”.
An internal error has occurred while showing an internal error.
You are recommended to exit the workbench.
Subsequent errors may happen and may terminate the workbench without warning.
See the .log file for more details.
Do you want to exit the workbench?
However, when I pointed towards the question, "Do you want to exit the workbench?" the very first thing I thought is to hit No button. Though, thereafter I expected it would present me the same strange error message saying,
An internal error occurred while showing an internal error, but I was wrong as I didn’t get something like that, but the eclipse come up with a white bar and stop working thereafter.
