Dialogue box buttons don't work in Eclipse on Ubuntu 9.10

I am having trouble with Eclipse 3.5 on Ubuntu. After I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 I have discovered that buttons with dialogue boxes no longer work correctly - nothing happens when clicking one.

"It's apparently a known bug in Eclipse + Compiz that can be fixed by setting GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=true before running eclipse.

I also have this issue. I don't have a fix, but you can click on a button and hit space/enter to activate it. You can use the keyboard for dialog boxes.
