Oh, you better would have whined louder and submitted a bug-report. 
I just stumpled across this issue by accident and added a few checks
for NULL pointers after 1.2.0 was out. 1.2.1 should behave better 
because of this, but I'm sure the problem wouldn't have existed in
1.2.0 if there would have been a proper bug-report earlier.

A quick test (creating a copy of one plug-in in the plug-in path) makes
me think that the problem is fixed in the current gimp-1-2 branch in 
CVS, but it would be nice if people could test it a little more. 

Salut, Sven
