Details

nsWebShell::Init() is opening the registry and writing to it. (for adding keys
for multipart-mixed and ftp-dir-listing. This is bad. The component registry is
read only when running.

Could I understand why we need to write to registry. I think either:
- this should happen at registration time
(or)
- if not, the registration of factory should be sufficient. There
  should be no AddsubTree(). The stream converters should be told
  directly that these new converters have been added.

And why does this happen 8 times at startup. nsWebShell::Init() happens so many
times.... wow. I should file a separate bug on this.
