Android Lint - What to do with it?

I have installed an add-on (Lab Lab Class Diagram Editor) from Eclipse MarketPlace.
Since then I have been getting errors about Android Lint when eclipse starts:

Android Lint has encountered a problem.



Android Lint has encountered a problem.
An internal error occurred during: "Running Android Lint".


Then Lint stops working and I can't access the window -> Launch Android Lint -> ...
I've never used this on purpose, some people say without it. It seems useful though, and I would prefer it to work.

Not the first time I have problems with Lint, every time you change your environment a little, Android ADT seems to have problems. I'm still new to Eclipse / Android ADT and I may have used it incorrectly.

What is Android lint?
The Android lint tool is a static code analysis tool that checks the source files of an Android project for possible errors and optimization improvements for correctness, security, performance, usability, accessibility, and internationalization.

Is Android Lint useful? Does it normally crash so often when you install add-ons or modify your environment? What's a good practice for it to work?
