I was checking in to a new issue opened on the netbeans plugin. [1]

For every menu item for the AddOn in the current context (ex Writer),
the constructor is called then the Menu is first clicked.
If there are 2 menu items the constructor is ran twice.
This only happens on the first time per context opened.

Is this expected behavior?

Is the constructor called from office?

If so it's not a bug in the plugin.
