When calling CKEDITOR.replace with two extra Plugins twice, the editor does not load on the second time

I am trying to add two extra plugins. Every time I open the editor, I call CKEDITOR.replace. It works fine first time I open the editor, however if I close it and reopen it again (i.e. call CKEDITOR.replace again), the editor never loads. Also, I noticed that if I leave a single plugin, the problem disappears.

I have took a look into the source code and I found a mistake in the CKEDITOR.scriptLoader.load method.

var scriptCount = scriptUrl.length;

// ...

for (var i = 0; i < scriptCount; i++) {
    loadScript( scriptUrl[ i ] );

// ...

var checkLoaded = function( url, success ) {
    ( success ? completed : failed ).push( url );
    if ( --scriptCount <= 0 ) {
	showBusy && CKEDITOR.document.getDocumentElement().removeStyle( 'cursor' );
	doCallback( success );

As you can see, there is a loop, where loadScript is called for each scriptURL (a number of scriptURLs equals to scriptCount). However it turns out that loadScript decreases the scriptCount. So if scriptCount = 2, the second scriptURL does not have a chance to be processed, because the loop is ended after the first iteration!

I have resolved this problem by replacing scriptCount to scriptUrl.length in the loop:

for (var i = 0; i < scriptUrl.length; i++) {
    loadScript( scriptUrl[ i ] );

You may want to apply this fix.

Could you provide the simplified code snippet you have used to reproduce this issue?

Besides reproducing I just wanted to exclude obvious and make sure that you are destroying the editor before creating new one.
