I use Debian Wheezy, and frequently make use of Java applications that are famous for being memory-hungry (namely Eclipse variants NetBeans and Aptana Studio 3 on RadRails or PyDev modes). I was having no problem at all with them when I used Oracle JRE. However, I'm using OpenJDK since my last formatting and I started having random unexpected exits from the apps. I then ran Aptana Studio via the terminal so I could see any error messages, and there is what I got when the program closed:
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment: # # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xb00b803d, pid=4748, tid=3076118208 # # JRE version: 7.0_25-b30 # Java VM: OpenJDK Client VM (23.7-b01 mixed mode, sharing linux-x86 ) # Problematic frame: # C [libsoup-2.4.so.1+0x5603d] soup_session_feature_detach+0x1d # # Failed to write core dump.

Is this some known issue with OpenJDK or some problem in my machine? How can I solve it? I really need these programs for work.
Edit 1: As Chris suggested, I checked ~/hs_err_pid4778.log. It contains this log, but all I could see from it was that Aptana caused the problem, which I already expected. However the crash seems to be caused by many different modules/methods? I still have no idea how to solve that.
