#3878 ManagePanel can't uninstall plugins from Windows

minor bug
Alan Ezust

This is not something I can reproduce in Linux, only on Windows.
I try to remove plugins via the Plugin Manager's manage panel and I see a "remove failed" dialog.
This seems to not matter which plugin.
And I can delete the actual file via the File System Browser no problem.

    Well, if you can reproduce it, go on, give the steps.

    Using Windows 7.

    Go to manage panel.
    Select any "un-checked" plugin (I was testing with Optional, and SshConsole, but it works with any plugin I've tried, including CharacterMap or Completion).
    Click the remove button.
    See a dialog "remove failed" with the path to the plugin jar.
    And these plugins are located in in %APPDATA%\jEdit\jars
