Hi Kay,

When you report a bug when using the IDE, we need to determine whether 
it's a bug in the IDE, or a bad interaction between the IDE and a plugin.

In general, if removing the plugin fixes the issue, we'll ask you to go 
and take the problem it up with the plugin's author.

However, we do so in the full expectation that the person who wrote the 
plugin may then turn around and tell us, "No, actually the IDE is broken 
and my plugin has exposed a bug!"
