But on fast computer like mine (what?), it is possible to create 2 insatnces of a plugin in so short delay that the system time is not updated. The consequence is that you give the same id to different plugins. Perhaps it does not happen to the other launcher because of the cpu cache not being used or something like that. I' ve also tried to add more launcher, the result is that after the 4st launcher, this problem happen more often.

The only I have is to use an integer you increment every time a plugin is added. This value must be stored at the application level and be saved when exiting to avoid problems.(or initialised with the highest + 1)
I don't know if the id is just used for determining the config file or also for something else, but if it's just for that, I think it can work.
