The main reason I filed the bug is, so that for the future the plugins shouldn't
install if they are incompatible. You should add some requirement for

Thanks again

Well there is a problem with adding a requirement: 
For the stable releases I usually build claws-mail afterwards claws-mail-plugins
and then push it as one upgrade so there should be no problems with

For devel this is a bit different as I can only build the plugins after building
claws-mail and as I sometimes push builds with a bit of a time delay it might
happen that the main program gets pushed before the plugins.

Adding a requirement that would prevent this is a bit problematic if not
infeasible and would cause numerous rebuilds just to satisfy requirements (w/o
actual code changes). As we are only talking about rawhide problems I will try
to keep these problems at a minimum.
