PyCharm messed up my PyDev

Dear All,

I managed to solve the problem. Something got messed up in the
.metadata directory. After renaming it, Aptana Studio re-created it
and I could successfully specify the Python interpreter.

In PyCharm I specified the same workspace to use, maybe that was the problem.
