java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Comparison method violates its general contract!
Created attachment 113363 [details]
We need some steps to reproduce this.
Unfortunately the exception message is absolutely insufficient. It should tell us what is the comparator and which comparisons in particular violate the contract.
Since we do not have such information, please provide steps how can we reproduce the exception.
It will be almost impossible for me to reproduce it. This was while doing regular tasks in IDE so if the trace is not enough I will wait to see this error happening again.
Do you remember which column in which debugger view did you have sorted when this exception occurred?
I have a suspicion that ETableColumn.RowComparator is problematic. I'll add some debug messages into trunk around the sort call so that we can get more information...
I think it was "variables" and sorted by "value" ASC
This should be fixed together with issue #205828.
