I actually had this enabled in Spaces on Snow Leopard, but I'd like to turn this off because I use those key combinations when editing in Eclipse. How do I turn this off?

Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Mission Control and change the settings for "Move left a space" and "Move right a space" or disable them completely.
