This one is a little mind-bending. If I create a custom block plugin from Generic -> Custom Block Manager Plugin, the plugin listing under Blocks Plugins -> somecustomblock includes a "Delete" option. Clicking Delete actually deletes the Custom Block Manager plugin under Generic Plugins -- not the custom block made BY the plugin. 

If users want to delete a custom block, they should do so from Generic Plugins -> Custom Block Manager -> Settings. 

Ideally, there should be no "Delete" option for custom blocks; of if so, it should only delete the custom block, not the Custom Block Manager plugin. Regardless, this behaviour isn't made explicitly clear to users, but should be.
