I have a virtual machine running Trinity. The package set is from 
July 29. I see the same behavior there in that selecting the plugin 
check boxes results in the tabbar not appearing and when 
immediately thereafter opening the Settings dialog the check boxes 
are cleared. I do not see the stderr messages but I suspect that is 
because this older package set does not include commit 5354555.

I have a virtual machine. There I am able to enable the 
tabbar extension. That tells me only that something changed from to pre R14.

The problem appears with or without the tdeaddons patch. I suspect 
tdelibs, either a corner case I have stumbled across or something 
in my build script configuration options. The problem occurs with a 
fresh profile too.
