A workaround to make the Toolbox usable on recent versions of Ubuntu 12

I just tried running the Toolbox on a very recent version of Ubuntu 12 (Precise Pangolin).
I found that the menus don't appear, so the Toolbox is unusable. 
stdout/stderr reports errors like this: 

    (SWT:3716): LIBDBUSMENU-GTK-CRITICAL **: watch_submenu: assertion `GTK_IS_MENU_SHELL(menu)' failed 

The cause is apparently a bug in Eclipse:   https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=330563 

The workaround is to set an environment variable, by creating a script to run the Toolbox. 
The following worked for me:

nano launch.sh

    export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 

chmod +x launch.sh
