Looks like the AUR package build is incorrect, it should be showing the
revision number above and not "runknownM".

Updating the server might help. (the client code is relatively simpler
and somewhat less bug prone)

Can you reproduce this bug using a supported distribution? See:

I've tried it on Ubuntu 19.04 and to be able to get it to run at all
I've had to set:
GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus eclipse&
(looks like they've left "xim" input completely broken)
Maybe that will help?

Apart from that, I can use eclipse locally without problems.
Tested on both: Ubuntu 19.04 and Fedora 30..
