If you can't actually uninstall the plugin, then it would make perfect
sense to me that you can't run the uninstall hook either.

If you don't have FTP available, then consider configuring your server
such that the "direct" method works properly. This is a setuid setup,
basically, and there's a half a dozen ways to do it. The easiest would
be to use suPHP instead of the normal PHP setup.
