[CentralOH] Eclipse / PyDev / Subclipse on the Mac

Does anyone have any experience configuring Eclipse as a Python development environment on the Mac?

I'm using Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6.2) with MacPython 2.6.4, Eclipse 3.4.2 and PyDev 1.5.3.

I'm trying to get Subclipse working (1.6 but I'm not sure the versions are there are a lot of Subclipse plugins with different version numbers).  I can view repositories and check things in and out, but when I try to compare the local copy with the repository version, it fails with an error in PyMergeViewer:

> java.lang.NullPointerException

and a bunch more.
