The discovered list of plugins is put in an HashMap<SwingWorker, 
JConsolePlugins> This map is then iterated thanks to the keySet. This 
set that doesn't return the set of plugins in the same order each time.

EVALUATION Will fix it in an update release.

SUGGESTED FIX Change in VMPanel plugins = new HashMap<JConsolePlugin, SwingWorker<?,?>>(); to plugins = new LinkedHashMap<JConsolePlugin, SwingWorker<?,?>>();
