Deleting plugins

While working on a plugin, I created an alias of it in Glyphs 3 plugins folder. It was not compatible yet, so Glyphs suggested removing it. I clicked “yes”, thinking it’s going to remove the alias from its folder. Imagine my surprise to discover that the plugin is gone (it didn’t even go to trash, luckily iCloud Recover saved it), while alias is still sitting there, pointing to nothing. Why would it remove the file from a totally different folder and keep the alias in the Glyphs folder? Could you please correct that?

Some file operations follow aliases. In this case it is not useful. I’ll have a look if I can prevent this.
