Steps to reproduce:

Expected result:
- the file is opened in one of the windows.
Actual result:
- the scale plugin will activate and the file will be opened as a new tab in one of the windows but the system cannot deactivate the scale plugin. Cosequently, any other operations on the computer can not be performed, forcing to a reboot.

I cannot reproduce this bug. The scale plugin activates, but the system doesn't become unusable. Could you confirm that you're running Natty with the latest updates?
