 This is '''really''' low priority, but a bug nonetheless.

 If you activate a plugin and then delete (or malform) it's details at the
 top of it's file, it won't show up on the plugins list anymore. That means
 you can't deactivate it without deleting the file or whatnot.

 This stems from the plugins list being created off the files and then
 doing a check against each one to see if it's activated (last I looked,
 could be wrong).

 Perhaps a fix would be to start with the activated plugins list and then
 add to / overwrite it with the found plugins list and use the like plugin
 basename as the default title.

 As I said, really fringe case and low priority. ;)
