WindowBuilder with Eclipse 4.2 / 3.8 (Linux)

Currently, if you trying to use WindowBuilder under Linux with Eclipse 3.8 / Eclipse 4.2, it renders incorrectly.

Add the following line to the end of your eclipse.ini file to fix this:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.gtk.useCairo=false

This is a small bug in SWT and properly will be fixed soon. See Bug Report for details.
