    Eclipse keeps crashing when I make too many changes to an android xml layout file. After making a certain amount of changes I get a "Problem Occurred - Save Failed - No More handles" error message box, and then eclipse crashes. This is on

    Eclipse Galileo
    Version 3.5.1
    Build id: M20090917-0800

    Is there a new version of eclipse that does not have this crash issue? Any suggestions?

    Have you tried a new workspace? Sometimes eclipse broke your workspace and you have to make a new one.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but Eclipse is still crashing. I created a new workspace and new Android project, but I can still make Eclipse crash by changing the xml layout file.

    I started having the same issue last night.
    After editing the main.xml - Really just playing with buttons and layout changes while I get used to how Android does these things.

    It seems like after you add and remove soo many things from the form it craps out on you.

    I also noticed if I throw a gridView in, the Properties window flashes constantly, almost like it is loading the properties pane over and over again.

    Has anyone found a way around this other than to start your app over?
    Thats a hell of a waste of code time. Especially with the limited time I get to actually do this stuff any more.
