[Bug 1241101]


Created attachment 256390

Hi. I have looked into this problem and came up with the following
workaround patch that still uses Unity and avoids the crash.

I found that the crash occurs because a new Radio menu is created with *empty label*
for which unity_gtk_action_group_get_state_name() returns null and this ends up with a null-pointer dereference at g_str_hash().

My suggestion is to modify _1gtk_1radio_1menu_1item_1new_1with_1label() in os.c to call gtk_radio_menu_item_new_with_label() with an arbitrary, non-empty string if the
given string for label is for empty string (2nd parameter). In this patch, I used the string with one space (" ") as an arbitrary text.

I confirmed that, with this patch, the test given by Thomas Singer passes and all tests in Test_org_eclipse_swt_widgets_MenuItem.java pass as well. 
Please let me know if you have any question or suggestion for this patch. Thanks.

  I tried different version of Java (Oracle v7 and v6 jre) with same
  result. Also, Eclipse display blank menus so there's a general java
  problem with displays.
