Never seen this problem before. Did you run a Gradle build? [1] It needs to
generated required resources.

Also, the Eclipse files for some projects are not updated (though for the
modules they are fine, so it's not the problem you are having). My patch
for them was pending review by other Eclipse users and no one tested it, so
if you are up for it I could resume work on it.
