In general the idea of having Actions without an assosciated Option / Actions added at run time needs to be explored a bit more because the current code is not well suited for it.

I had the same problem with the python plugin (ie runtime generation of
options/actions).  I solved it by comparing the memory address of the
action since CompActionInitiateProc has a reference to it.  I am not sure
this is a very nice thing to do, but it works well so far.

I might have a look at doing the python plugin this way, but the lazyness
inside me is saying not to ;)
