A future version could, in theory, but it seems better to assume that plug-in authors have good intentions. However, minor accidents causing a crash in a plug-in should NOT kill Gimp as you said. This is our strength over most PC apps when it comes to integrating 3rd party plug-ins. This has been annoying me, but I presumed that whoever's been tinkering with the signals knew what they were doing...? Nick.
