I got my Eclipse development environment, restored from 32-bit Lubuntu 
16.04.4 to 64-bit Lubuntu 16.04.4 to work.

It turned out there is an "eclipse" folder in my home directory, as well 
as an ".eclipse" folder under my home directory.  One of those folders 
may have been from an older version of Eclipse.

When I restored those two folders from my 64-bit production partition 
(used to generate the 64-bit libraries) to the new 64-bit partition, 
Eclipse now runs, and on quick examination, seems to be working properly.

So I am now switched over to 64-bit Lubuntu 16.04.4, assuming I don't 
run into any more show-stoppers.
