There is already a bug about eclipse.exe not being able to launch 
Harmony when DRLVM is used. It is HARMONY-4006. All patches there are 
ready to committed after code freeze.

BTW it is a windows only bug because of windows specific name 
decorations for JNI_CreateJavaVM function. On Linux eclipse 3.3 should 
work without any patches.
