[webkit-dev] Plug Ins dont work when rebuilding WebKit

Hi There

I know this has been discussed before, but the solution doesn't work for me

I am making a tiny behavioural change to WebCore, then rebuilding WebKit to use in a specialist application.
When I am done building I move the frameworks into the pre-built WebKit nightly build application.

This works great, and the WebCore now does what I want.   However the QuickTime Plug-in no longer works, where it did before I switched out the frameworks.

I know that in theory I can just copy the "WebKitPluginHost" and "WebKitPluginAgent" from the original nightly build into my own WebKit folder, but that does NOT work for me.

Its the same if I rework the nightly build app, or use run-safari script.  No Plug ins.
Could anyone advise how to troubleshoot this ?

Whilst I am on the topic, if I am only making a change to WebCore, how could I just replace the WebCore framework into the Nightly build app instead of all the parts.  When I try that, the app doesn't really work right, so I am guessing there are some more complex dependancies between builds.

Thanks for any tips.
