Problem with Crystal reports for Eclipse and Postgres-databases


Is there a known problem when using a PostgreSQL-database to create a report with Crystal reports Plugin?

When I drag a table, then occurs a error-windows, that the object can't created.

I have found a workaround for solving the problem. After new installing Eclipse Platform Version: 3.4.1 Build id: M20080911-1700 and Crystal reports Plugin 11.8.6.v1371 with JRE 1.6.0_01 the error message allways occurs, when I select a table from a PostgreSQL database (Version 8.2). After restarting eclipse you see the last selected tables in the field explorer and you can drag the table fields in the report. A repeated choice of the same table causes aliases for the table in the field explorer after restarting eclipse.
