When deleting a shapefile. dbf field in Table Manager (v0.2.3), and pressing Save, I get the message "Failed backuping the old table to nnn.dbf~". Happening at every attempt in both W7 and XP.

Seems it's a problem with access to nnn.dbf file, while it's already open by Qgis. As Qgis can't delete fields by the OGR Driver, Tablemanager has to modify it on his own.
Unfortunately I have no idea how to do it easily in operating systems not supporting multiple access to file (and I have no plans to invest more time into this plugin, as it's been designed as a temporary solution). I disabled this button on windows. I know it's not a real solution, so any help is wellcome.
I'm closing this ticket as invalid, as this trac is suitable for core plugins only. A trac for external plugins is temporarily hosted by Faunalia: https://trac.faunalia.it/qgis_plugins/
and fopefully after April's hackfe...eeting will be settled here: https://issues.qgis.org
