Sounds like a dupe of bug 1320361

Duplicate of bug: 1320361
Actually, even though there's probably no extra work required once bug 1320361 is solved, I'd like to un-dupe this and make it dependent on that bug, because the other bug is a bit too concerned with the technical details and we should track this important issue.

All this is in the end depending on bug 545265, but I don't really have high hopes for that one. :(
