CodeSleuth profiler 'not profiling'

I've just tried using the CodeSleuth eclipse plugin to profile a multi-threaded simulation that I've been working on. I followed the steps on the help, but I am unable to get the profiler profiling.

The profiler says that the profiling is complete just after it has started. The original program should take around 120 seconds, so I'm thinking that the program doesn't run. I tried putting

FileWriter out = new FileWriter ("testOut.txt");
out.write ("hello world");

at the start of my main function and then profiling, and I didn't get my outputfile.

I've tried the profiler with different settings to no avail. Even with ludicrusly long duration (~age of the universe) the profiler finishes almost instantaneously.

The .ca file is mostly empty too. The Navigation View says that it just contains "Dynamically Generated Code" which does not expand to show anything else.

The feeling that I get from the documentation is that it 'just works!', so have I missed something?

Thanks in advance
