This obviously doesn't lead to the desired effect of updating the xib files within the application bundle in case VLC-tmp.app is still around.

hmm, that's not intended and wasn't the way it worked in VLC 1.1, I agree.

At present, you can work-around that by just running "make" in the folder where you changed a file. Since VLC.app doesn't need to be modified, it will happily accept your re-build plugin.
