I think I've found a workaround. Instead of running /usr/bin/eclipse, I try
running /usr/share/eclipse/eclipse.

Then I get a "Fedora Eclipse" splash screen (which I didn't get from the
java -jar /usr/share/eclipse/startup.jar method), and it all seems to be OK
(admittedly, I haven't tested thoroughly).

Oddly enough, diff /usr/bin/eclipse /usr/share/eclipse/eclipse seems to
indicate the files are the same.
