Yes, "need" was a bit strong.

I'll try to find time to test basic plugin functionality on my targets
(depending on how much time I spend on the gigabeat bootloader).

I'll do the work disable all plugins that I know about tonight (about
midnight CEST) (or tomorrow night, depending on when the release would
be), but I can't test every target of course.
If that's too late, then this will still be useful for later point
releases.

If someone already has a list of known good/known bad plugins, that
would be very helpful. I've opened FS#9376 to collect information.
