Er yes that is what I do.
Can you point me to a module that does this correctly?

Of course there is an updated version of the plugin available which
would also fix this.

I havent seen the code for this plugin, so I'm just speculating.
however, it is
possible to force a plugin to be operating despite any efforts to
disable. The
Scrobbler plugin does this by forcing a setExecuteCallback that is
called
during the require, and does not comply with enable or disable. If this
itunesUpdate is doing something like this as well, there is little that
can be
done aside from disabling it as a known bad module.

James,

Implement the initPlugin() method. If your plugin is enabled, this is
invoked at SlimServer startup.
