Thats ok and not the cause of them being loaded. isEnabled should return
true for these plugins:

- project plugins
- non-user-selectable plugins (mostly language plugins I think)
- plugins that are enabled

I guess for some reason Qt/CMake help are enabled at that point, even
though they shouldn't. Currently I can't see how that would happen,
maybe I get around to check that tomorrow or on sunday..


You will be given a post of trust and responsibility.
