This happens to any plug-in that doesn't get recompiled when a protocol
bump occurs. Recompiling the perl plug-in would fix that.

If you give me a log-in on your machine I could fix it ;)

Hmm... I wonder how the order in the menus is being worked out by the
Gimp? Registration order? Alphabetical? Being able to control the sort
order in some sensible way is highly desirable indeed, but will definitely
not happen in 1.2 (IMHO it's very difficult).

What happened in your case might have been that all the C-plug-ins
(that were reinstalled) registered below the existing plug-ins and the
perl-plug-ins (which you haven't reinstalled) moved to the top.

This describe the behaviour of a subclass of all perl scripts. _Some_ C
plug-ins behave the same, btw, as well.

If you look at earlier discussions of this and related points you'll see that
a seperate menu hierarchy hardly makes sense.

OTOH, I'd be all for some visible indication in the menus itself (although
I am not 100% of wether that makes sense ;) It does not have any
drawbacks, however).

This has been discussed many times on this list already...
