Yes, I checked before emailing :-) Without the symlink nothing in
about:plugins and it doesn't open gchemutils files. After symlink it
works. I'll dig around a bit more to see if this is Ubuntu-specific. I
wouldn't have thought so, but I don't know.

Sure. I don't really like all these symlinks running around either for
the same plugin.
