Not exactly. Plugin stacks are treated as IDE system stacks. So errors
and breakpoints are silently ignored as long as gRevDevelopment is
false. Setting that property to true enables debugging plugins without
removing them from the Plugins folder but also exposes any errors in the
other system stacks (the active breakpoints in the Project Browser, any
script errors such as the one Bob uncovered).
