I can't get rid of an ugly and wasting-space margin below the menubar in Eclipse:

margin appears below menubar

I have followed a number of tutorials for improving the rendering of Eclipse on Ubuntu, including using a custom compact theme like the one in: How can I make Eclipse draw tabs more like native ones?

This really becomes a problem on debug perspective where I have the window divided in three views vertically.

Also, any tips for reducing other extra margins like in the tabs or status bars are welcome.
