1. Let's use Windows as an example.  Open
ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/windows/32bit/x86/2002-03-28-10-trunk/update.html
2. Click Launch XPInstall button
3. Click Install button from Software Installation dialog
4. Check Install.log after completing installation

RESULT:
The Install.log will show:

     Install completed successfully, restart required  --  03/28/2002 16:15:16

at the end of some packages.

EXPECTED RESULT:
No "restart required" appears because it is no longer necessary.

I bet it is required, check for a xpicleanup.dat being produced and .new or .old
files laying around. Typically it'll be the chrome .jar files on WinNT, on Win9x
it'll be just about everything. Note: "restart" (of the browser), not "reboot".

Marking INVALID unless I've completely misunderstood here.

Restart is not reboot.  How many users know the difference?  I will submit an
enhancement bug report to suggest a kinder, gentler description. :-)
