Hi Mark,

I would guess that the plugin was set to load on startup. If you go to 
Plugin settings in the Development -> Plugins menu, you can set
the plugins behavior to load on startup, or only when chosen from the 
menu. If you had set this to load only from the menu, then I think 
deleting it would not have caused any problems.

However, I am surprised that you weren't able to solve things by 
putting the plugin back into the plugins folder.

One final note: when you use the Plugin Settings stack, closing it also 
closes all open plugins. I think I bugzilla'd this a while ago but I 
can't remember the number.
