netbeans crashing on testing/sid




Hello,

I've been googling for a few days now to find a solution to this.
I can't get netbeans to start, I see the splash screen displaying messages as "initialysing, loading modules, loading services" and then it disappears, leaving no clue in a terminal.
My best bet was there :
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=894715
and
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=891957

But it seems I must be missing something else ...

~$ dpkg -l libequinox* netbeans | grep ^ii
ii  libequinox-osgi-java 3.8.1-10     all          Equinox OSGi framework
ii  netbeans             8.1+dfsg3-2  all          Extensible Java IDE

~$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_172"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_172-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.172-b11, mixed mode)

This is oracle-java8-jdk-amd64 but I tried with java-8-openjdk-amd64 too.

Any piece of advice would be welcomed.
