I generally install Mozilla as root and then run the short script in the release
notes for multi user use before using Mozilla under a normal userid.

Starting with the 4/16 nightlies, every time I install Mozilla (including RC1),
when I run the multi-user shell script (as root), regxpcom segfaults.  Mozilla
still runs afterward as a normal user, though there seem to be a few more
problems (enigmail does initialize, plus a few other things)  But I'm not sure
if this is the reason.

Note the installer completes normally - its only when regxpcom is run manually
or via the multi user shell script.

I'm running on RedHat 7.2, fully patched with Ximian Gnome and XFree 4.2

I'll be happy ot provide any othe rdebug info you might need.

I've fallen back to the 2002041507 nightly which works fine and regxpcom
executes normally.  There might be a couple later builds that worked, but if
memory serves, 2002041606 or 8 was the first time I saw this problem.

Here's a backtrace from RC1 (2002041711):

This bug makes it very difficult to install Jave, since the standard method for
installing Java requires running regxpcom.  In this case, I run regxpcom as: regxpcom /<long-path>/ns610/

Can anyone tell me what regxpcom does, so I can perform its actions manually?
