No, I downloaded the file ans installed it the usual way by double
clicking the icon produced.

You are absolutely correct. I looked carefully at the website with the
plugin and it is targeted to the old version of Gimp. To be pedantic,
the so called old version of gimp is not so old and the new version is
beta, I think.

I hope that by the time Gimp 2.4 is released the plugins, where
necessary, will also be updated.

However, I am still puzzled. How can a package which I have removed
reappear all by itself?
