False alarm there, I just tried it again and the entries are placed there
correctly. They come from the /var/pluginMountSnippet.xml and
pluginLmMountSnippet.xml files. So even an entry for an unaltered plugin
does appear, but those matches are looking for entries containing the full
path and so when we alter a plugin to suit, it works.

I checked the PDF plugin again as this was never broken on Windows and found
that the exact same fix we recently found we needed to do to other plugins
was already present in the PDF plugin.

Thorsten committed this change back in February 18th [1] with the log
message of 'making resources usable from other plugins' .

I have yet to find out why this change makes things work again on Windows
but is not needed for Linux/MAC.
