Are you sure your cursor is on a Java type?  I only
get that message when my cursor is on something like
whitespace or a comment.  You need to click on the
type or method you want to see the definition of
before you hit F3.  I guess you knew that though...

Something just occurred to me: sometimes there are
strange effects when your source code doesn't quite
fit the compiled version.  I've had cases where I
attached an old version of the source code to a newer
compiled version.  Could this be the reason?
