Details

Apprunner is prematurely quitting when you try to create a new profile.  I tried
to create a profile in 2 scenerios (launching apprunner with profile manager
and deleting the registry file and launching apprunner by it self) and got the
same result.

Steps:
1. Without deleting the registry from yesterday's builds, launch "apprunner
-ProfileManager"
2. Click "New" and then "Next" in the dialog that opens.
3. mozProfile will appear in the field for the profile name, click "Finish"
4. Apprunner exits.

The same things happens if i delete the registry file and then launch
apprunner...the CreateProfile Wizard window pops up and i click Next and Finish
and apprunner crashes.

If i go back and launch "apprunner -ProfileManager", the profile i create in the
steps above appears in the list of profiles...so it is being created, but
apprunner is just exiting prematurely

NOTE: This is only happening on Linux build 1999081201 (8am build on 08/12)
Windows build 1999081210 is ok...
I don't know if this is related, but I found a bug in nsProfile.cpp last night,
which was double-deleting a pointer to a char* (see http://lxr.mozilla.org/
seamonkey/source/profile/src/nsProfile.cpp#924). This bug causes an assertion on
the Mac.
