currently, contrary to the XUL1.0 doc, many (if not all) XUL boolean attributes
*only* works when set to "true" and does not work when set to "false".
critical == 'crashes, loss of data, severe memory leak'. 

Can you also elaborate on what you mean.
Severity: critical → normal
whoops!, my bad, must have accidentally clicked on the wrong dropdown.
Text widgets have this same problem. (Bug 72157)

huh. I thought I backed out my patch weeks ago. If not (apparently not),
reassign this to me, I'll back it out.

I think that it may be why bannerblind (http://bannerblind.mozdev.org)XUL
interface works in Netscape 6.2 but not in a recent Mozilla... is it a
regression? Or am I writing deprecated XUL code?

This is something that I would definitely want to see get some traction, since
it has a patch.  Also, it seems to break a lot of embeddors and XUL hobbyists. :-)

Blake, would you take a look at your patch, and update it to the trunk if it is
still relevant?

what is the status on this, do we still care about this? I could write patches
if someone wants this fixed.
