NPE/broken functionality/cannot start after install from Red Hat Central into rh-eclipse46-devstudio

      I installed rh-eclipse46-devstudio-10.2-0.20161111.0219.el7.x86_64.rpm and followed Nick's scenario [1]. In Red Hat Central, I clicked "Select All" (it found 36 items), then "Install/Update", did all the confirmations, including a restart. After the restart, Eclipse died on java.lang.NullPointerException. I'm attaching the workspace log (aside from the NPE, it's full of "Could not resolve module").

      I reproduced the problem several times on two different machines. The update for RHBZ#1392095 (rh-eclipse46-eclipse-4.6.1-2.4.el7) isn't necessary, it just makes the reproduction much faster.

      Not sure how related it is, but rh-eclipse46 disallows updating packages installed from RPM [2]. But in the list of software to be installed/updated, I saw, among others, EGit and Mylyn, which are definitely included in rh-eclipse46-base. In any case, I'm attaching the list, too.
