    SQL Developer crashing when opening or testing a connection

      SQL Developer closes abruptly when opening or testing a connection.

      Here's what I do.

      Open SQL Developer.
      Create a connection:
      Connection Name: [some string]
      Username: [username]
      Password: [password]
      Save password: checked
      Oracle tab:
      Connection type: TNS
      Connect Identifier: somedatabasename

      Then I click on "Test" and the application immediately quits. No error messages. The app does the same thing if I save the connection and try to expand its node on the list of connections.

      Mind you, if I use sqlplus like so:


      It connects just fine.

      I captured the output from the command console after SQL Developer crashed:

      Java 1.6.0_43 (64-bit)
      Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (64-bit)
