"Change the keyboard shortcut for showing the Spotlight menu to something like control-command-space:

Then use a private.xml like this with KeyRemap4MacBook:

<?xml version=""1.0""?>
<root>
<appdef>
<appname>ECLIPSE</appname>
<equal>org.eclipse.eclipse</equal>
</appdef>
<item>
<name>test</name>
<identifier>test</identifier>
<not>ECLIPSE</not>
<autogen>__KeyToKey__ KeyCode::SPACE, VK_COMMAND | ModifierFlag::NONE,
KeyCode::SPACE, ModifierFlag::CONTROL_L | ModifierFlag::COMMAND_L</autogen>
</item>
</root>"
