[Kst] Behavior of plugins: parts missing

I have been playing a bit with plugins and I am having trouble with the behavior of plugins called from the create menu. If you call a filter plugin from the RMB in a plot, you get a dialog where the input vector is preselected and greyed out (OK, since you call it from the context menu of a curve) and where you can set the options of the curve to be created, as well as its placement.
When you want to create a plugin object from the create menu, you get a barebone dialog where you can only choose the input vector, and nothing more. The X vector is chosen to be the input vector, and the new curve is placed in a new plot. I don't grasp why we don't get the same dialog as in the first case, with only the input vector freely selectable. 

Try to create a low-pass plugin on a curve from the context menu and then on the same curve but from the global Create->Filter Plugin menu, and you'll see what I mean!
I guess this is pretty easy to fix, and I'd really like it fixed ASAP because it is absolutely not user-friendly as it is - and not good enough for screencasts! Barth, does it sound possible to fix this prior to 2.0.3 or is it too much?
