I use the defaultPlugins to load one plugin, specific to the application. 
Nothing more. I can confirm, that the plugins get unloaded, when activating 
the plugin in the settings and deactivating them again. (no restart required

Thats, where I would have started looking. :) I suspect the problem to be 
related to the DocumentationView. I have this ToolView active. I just checked 
the source and found it. The 
Shell::DocumentationController::documentationProviders() uses 
IPluginController::allPluginsForExtension() to find all documentation 
providers. IMHO it should only query all loaded plugins for the 
IDocumentationProvider interface.

bye then
