Oof, I keep forgetting about this and not having time to check into it.

Please open a bug so we can remember to do something about it...

I've developed a plugin for my companies protocols. The plugin includes a tap and 11 statistics trees, created via stats_tree_register(). Under 1.6.8 and earlier, these statistics items appear in the Statistics menu, as expected.
I recompiled the plugin for 1.8.0. Clean compile, no errors on loading. However, the menu items no longer appear. No errors, but no menu items.
I know the GUI stuff changed between 1.6.8 and 1.8.0. Are stats menu items registered via stats_tree_register() no longer supported for plugins? If they are supposed to be supported, where should I start looking for the potential problem?
Is this a C plugin or a Lua script?

I had to change a bunch of stuff:

http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/viewvc/viewvc.cgi?view=rev&revision=41591

to get the Lua scripts stuff working again (and I thought it worked when I was done).  It may be that plugin stats were also broken (or I broke it).

Needs more research after I've gotten some sleep...
