Pipelight is crashing java applications

Bug Description

Pipelight is crashing Java applications, and generally causing a serious slowdown with anything Java related.

It appears that it is loading through the SWT WebGTK component (which is embedding a webkit component I believe).

This is causing a serious instability in Java applications, and many times they crash with segmentation and bus error faults.

A snippet of a crash here:

(Run the JRockit Mission Control application and select to start the console on the local instance to reproduce).

I have uninstalled pipelight, as Java is much more important than Unity webplayer.

I think it is misguided that there is no environment variable or anything that allows me to say "NO!" don't load the pipelight/wine context when running e.g. Java programs.

Anyway, I believe this is fatal to this otherwise interesting toy. Crashing utterly unrelated systems is not acceptable, ever.

Information: Debian Sid.
Desktop Env: Gnome 3
No info on the plugin - I have uninstalled it and will not reinstall.
(also reproduceable on friend and colleague's Kubuntu 14.04 KDE env).

Console output when I ran eclipse before the uninstall:
