Another question from me:
When I write a plugin, my text editor (kwrite or kate) creates a backup
file named plugin.py~. When I start now the plugin in GIMP, it is
executing the backup instead the original.
As a workaround I execute
chmod -x *~
but sometimes I forget this and this is annoying.
Maybe it's possible to integrate sth. like this in GIMP before plugins
