Hi and thanks for answering,
It happens with all the projects, including the ones that are shipped with the download - Phonebook, Requisition Management System, etc. I tried on one more machine - at work - and the same happens. I am using ubuntu 10.04 there. All three machines had had eclipse platform installed beforehand - could this be a clue? I wonder if there is some missing library or something, or some issue with outdated files.
I have a mac and I installed tersus there too - no problems there.
P.S. I tried deleting the Twitter project and when I imported it again, it worked. Then I closed it and couldn't open it anymore. Tried with stage4 too.
For best results, use the Firefox browser..
