Nominating nsbeta1.  Anyone else seeing this?  Anyone else using QL with
multiple profiles?

One note here is that IM I believe is planning on launching at OS boot, so in
that context this may make sense (though it will be unsightly), but I don't
think that work is done yet.

I am not able to reproduce this on WinNT or Win2000 (using Mozilla or N6.2)
Cannot get build to try on Win98 yet.  (Multiple profiles with QL on)
after reboot, icon reappears as expected and PM does not appear until I click on 
icon as expected

Anything different about your machine Todd?  Can you reproduce reliably?

Grace, yes, this happens every time for me and has been for awhile (I know, I
should have filed the bug sooner!).  I tried to ask around to find others
running the same setup to see if they were experiencing this too, but couldn't
find anyone so I just filed the bug.  It could be something machine specific,
but I don't know what.  You're welcome to come check out my machine if you can't
reproduce on Win98.

Let me know when you are around and I will check your machine- I tested on my 
Win98 machine and cannot reproduce there either.

I saw this on my win98 box with yesterday's build.

Todd, do you have AIM set to sign on at launch?

Conrad handles these sorts of things (very well, too, I might add :-).

Will that be true in this case too Conrad? ;-)

Originally, with QuickLaunch, the app was launched differently at startup. There
used to be a shortcut in the startup items folder - now it's done with a key in
the registry. Todd, is it possible that there's an old shortcut left around on
your machine? Maybe one that's lacking the -turbo arg? When you select a profile
and continue, is there an icon in the system tray? In other words, is it in
-turbo mode at that point?

Yep, I figured it out yesterday and just went to comment in the bug and noticed
you'd already thought of that!  I did have the old -turbo argument in my start
up routine that I put there manually back when QL was just getting implemented.

Peter,  Do you have the old shortcut around too?  Is this working for you also?

Almost certainly, I don't see this on my primary machine, just a machine that I
had not used in a while, except to install and run this recent build. Does that
mean that customers who upgrade from 6.2 are likely to see this?
