The PMD plugin is adding itself to the statusbar at every start, it should not do that, especially if I removed it.
PMD should use the Task Monitor instead of having its own progress bar.
But if it must keep its own bar, there should be some hovertip indicating what it is. and it should always be hidden at 0%
I think this is more or less fixed in svn already. I haven't had time to look in to the task manager api yet.
I believe this is fixed, so I'm closing it. This will be in the 5.0.2 release of PMD.
