“Workspace prompt on startup” in eclipse is not working

I am currently working with Eclipse 3.6 Helios, even though I have selected "workspace prompt on startup" in eclipse preferences it does not work.

I read through various forums, and understood that it's a bug from eclipse.
Then, I have searched in eclipse bugs directory on this, as per them it was fixed in 2006 itself, but I am not sure how come this issue comes up again.

Anyway I just went ahead with the temporary solutions to resolve this issue.

Here are the various solutions which worked out for me.

1.  Opening eclipse in clean mode
     eclipse.exe -clean

    If Desktop shortcut created, you can just add the -clean parameter in target location:
     D:\Work\eclipse\eclipse.exe -clean

2. Other solution which worked out was deleting ".manager" directory in D:\Work\eclipse\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi
