Comment (by azaozz):

 I've tested/played with recovery mode a bit more during the weekend. It is
 really easy/straightforward to enter it, but for now it's not easy or
 straightforward to exit it :)

 > When the user logs out, should we automatically exit recovery mode

 +1. That should be one of the ways to exit recovery mode. It won't be very
 "reliable" exit as users may stay logged in ("Remember me" checkbox on the
 login screen).

 Another way should be on clicking "Resume" or "Deactivate" (should we also
 have "Delete" there?) for a paused plugin. We reload WP and re-check the
 plugin. If there aren't any other problems, there is no point to stay in
 recovery mode.

 Yet another way (IMHO) should be on visiting the Paused Plugins screen. We
 can do the same checks as when the user clicked "Resume".

 In all cases there should be an "info" message when recovery mode has
 ended (if possible). Keeping the user informed of what's happening with
 their site is best :)
