Why uninstalling the following (empty) plugin results in error?

Here is my-plugin/my-plugin.php:

<?php
/*
Plugin Name: My Plugin
*/

and my-plugin/uninstall.php:

<?php

When I click 'Delete' and then confirm, I get the following error:

Plugin could not be deleted due to an error: Could not fully remove the plugin(s) my-plugin/my-plugin.php.

What's wrong here?


~/Sites/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/my-plugin $ ls -ll
total 16
-rwxrwxrwx@ 1 me  staff  34 13 Aug 21:43 my-plugin.php
-rwxrwxrwx@ 1 me  staff   6 13 Aug 21:44 uninstall.php

The plugin in question (the empty one). –  Misha Moroshko Aug 13 '12 at 13:49
    
// my-plugin/uninstall.php what's that ? –  amit Aug 13 '12 at 14:37
    
It's not part of the file. I updated the question. –  Misha Moroshko Aug 13 '12 at 21:57
