To help along, in case people are not aware of the versions involved, here is
The bug regarding the change for while using 1.6 target is:
It was part of the 3.2.2 release (3.2.0 was released in June 2006 and the
maintenance update 3.2.2 around March 2007).
They also recently changed the behaviour for the 1.5 target:
That change was backported to the 3.3 branch, but it seems like it just missed
the 3.3.2 release. In other words, it's only available in 3.4.0 in eclipse.org
releases. 3.4.0 was released in June 2008.
Hope this helps,
