Eclipse no longer working with 1.9.0-ea-b61

Eclipse no longer starts with 1.9.0-ea-b61 or higher, complaining about
missing org.w3c.dom.stylesheets.StyleSheetList.

I'm guessing this is due to (Re-examine the
supportedness of non-SE org.w3c.dom.** API), which points to a regression
that should be fixed with
Unfortunately doing a local build from 9dev with the commit for that bug
included doesn't help, the message stays the same.

Is this an eclipse issue, or a legitimate regression on the JDK side?


PS: Attached the full eclipse log file for b60, b61 and my local version.
The local version was built from:
