Also confusing is that when I uninstall the UIMA plugins through the 
Installed Software tab of the Install New Software -> What is already 
installed dialog box, the jar files remain in the plugins subdir after a 
restart, and they are still loaded by Eclipse. The component descriptor 
editors still work, e.g., and they are listed in the Plugins tab of the 
Install New Software -> What is already installed dialog.

Not hard to work around, but I let myself make several false inferences 
about how the setup works based on a partial understanding of these
