The error message for a missing requirement is confusing, even in the cases where it does not actually crash the compiler. See this thread for an example:

https://groups.google.com/d/topic/scala-ide-dev/1CmBfp-HCIc/discussion

'unpickling' is an implementation term that has zero meaning to Scala programmers, and should not be the first word in the error message. I guess 'incomplete classpath while reading..' is a better approximation. Also, there is no reason to include debugging information in the error message by default (the list of all members in the enclosing package). A 100-line error message can freak out a lot of people.

Link to gmail is not a good idea because it doesn't work for anybody else.

Other than that I agree with Iulian.

Sorry about the gmail link. I wish gmail was smart enough to know when a message came from google groups, and show you the link instead. I updated the original ticket.

Jason eliminated the error message six months ago (in 0b59b4627a) and that leaves me without any reproduction. If this still happens I need a clearer idea how.

So I'm closing this for now, please reopen if you can tell me how to reproduce something.
