    OEPE causes Eclipse Kepler to start with wrong workspace, overrides Eclipse's workspace configuration

      I'm a new OEPE user, and found that after installing it, Eclipse (Kepler) now starts up with the wrong workspace every time. I have to explicitly do File > Switch Workspace... to get Eclipse to restart with the correct workspace. Also, the workspace I want to use is the only one listed in the Workspaces preferences panel (Window > Preferences > General > Startup and Shutdown > Workspaces).

      And this sounds curiously like this old problem reported right here on the OTN Community site:

      Any suggestions for how to get around this? I assume this is a bug, but don't know the correct process for reporting OEPE bugs.
