[Subclipse-dev] Plugin Not Working

Message I'm very new to Eclipse plugin development, but not new to Java. I want to make a very slight modification to subclipse, in particular how one of the decorator variables displays it's output.

I've downloaded the code and made my simple change. When I launch the Dev instance of Eclipse from Eclipse, I can see my change but many things are broken and I have no idea why. I even reverted my code and I still have the same errors, but I think these issues are something to do with how Eclipse launches itself.

I then re-made my changes and then exported the plugin using the File -> Export -> Plug-in Development -> Deployable plug-ins and fragments, which naturally generated a JAR. I copied this into my {eclipse-install-dir}/dropins, restarted Eclipse and nothing happened, in other words I couldn't see my change. Not knowing if the dropins weren't working (I don't have any others), or what, I then proceeded to remove the current version of org.tigris.subversio​n.subclipse.ui_1.8.2​1.jar in plugins and drop my new one into plugins. Then I restarted Eclipse and went to Preferences and SVN was not an option under Team. I'm assuming this means there was a problem loading my changes. I've checked {workspace}/.metadata/.log, but there's not much of anything in there.

How do I debug this?
