I'm observing main class badges missing in various situations as well. This seems to be new in 7.3 for me at least. Here's one way to trigger the bug that worked for me three times in a row:

1) In an already-open java project, create a new Java file.
2) Put "public static void main(String args[]) {}" in the class and save. The icon in the editor tab for the java file now a main class badge, as does the icon in the project explorer, and the class can be run.
3) Close the editor tab for the java file.
4) Reopen the editor for the java file. While the class is still runnable and the file still has the badge in the explorer view, the main class badge is now missing from the editor tab icon.

The icon is also missing from the Ctrl+Tab menu (which is annoying, since I often use Ctrl+Tab to quickly go back to a main class while having a lot of other files open, and the lack of a main class badge makes it hard to quickly see where the main class editor is in the Ctrl+Tab list).
