Gilles, please consider this as a bug report.
My bags are packed, and I'm just about to leave for two weeks of courses.

Gilles, Deleting images from disk is not enough, you should call 
KIPI::Interface::delImage instead.

I guess that is my problem (if it still exists when using delImage, better

Actually that is exactly what we have the delImage method for, so this is 
simply a bug in porting the plugin.

Thanks for reporting.
