Lotus Notes 8.5.1 on Mac suddenly did not start anymore - solved

Today Notes 8.5.1 didn't start up. In the console log I saw error messages like this:

12/7/10 7:23:38 PM [0x0-0x11c01bf].com.ibm.lotus.Notes[5732] 2010/12/07 19:23:38.874 SEVERE Event loop exception ::class.method=com.ibm.rcp.personality.framework.internal.RCPWorkbenchAdvisor.eventLoopException() ::thread=main ::loggername=com.ibm.rcp.personality.framework.internal

I fixed this with deleting/renaming the configuration folder using following commands in a terminal window:

cd /Users/matthiashub/Library/Application Support/Lotus Notes Data/Expeditor/Applications/.config
mv org.eclipse.core.runtime/ org.eclipse.core.runtime.old

Seems to be hacky, but it worked, Notes is back! :-)
