Hi Einar,

that makes a lot of sense! Unfortunately, the interface is highly 
unclear on whether a given plugin is real-time or not. As a fall back, 
maybe rather than crashing, we could just display an error message?

The next question that follows: how can we simply determine if a the 
user has not selected the region of interest? I guess plugin->track is 
where the selected region is referred to...
