I'm very glad to get reports about this code, thanks Alexander.

The ACL plugin now has 2 actions, so I too was looking at the 
multi-action-plugin code again, just now.

Some small bugs, including the one you mentioned, fixed already and in svn. BUT 
deleting "child" lines in a config dialog, for plugins like cpbar, is still not 
bulletproof. Fixing this turns out to be quite hard, I'm still looking into it. 
Really, the whole plugin (parent line in the dialog) should be deleted, or the 
child should just be flagged as off-menu instead of deleted.

I can't get mine to do that. IIRC a long-ago chat with Liviu on the same 
matter, there might be a problem with the cached flags for the find plugin, as 
the ABI was changed a bit. In your cache file there'll be a line like

  find-plugin-flags=0,1,0,0 <and lots more 1's and 0's>

Does it help to delete that line and then try the plugin again ?

Now fixed in svn.

Well, it depends on what is going on at the time. If you were in the midst of a 
recursive operation, you'd probably want to know that a directory can't be 
opened, and beeping happens for virtually all errors. So we need to identify 
cases where failure to open is not really an error. Any suggestions?

That aside, is that string:

  "Cannot open directory //root - Permission denied"

EXACTLY what was printed ? What was the actual path of the dir that failed to 
open ?

Is this when just opening a directory for display in a filepane ? Or are we 
talking about some operation on directory contents ?

I need some more specific description, to help figure out exactly what is going 
on. Can you please post an example or two, showing exactly what was intended, 
the paths of the dirs involved, and exactly what happend ?
