Build: 9/24/99 SeaMonkey build

1. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click drop-down button and select
   f_addmacpatch_exe and click Trigger case button to set up file for
   patching
2. Checking the Version registry at this time shows that everything is fine
   so far
3. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click drop-down button and select
   f_macpatch_exe and click Trigger case button to patch file

var regName = "macpatch_exe";
var vi = new InstallVersion();
var jarSrc = "NCSA Telnet 2.7b5x.gdf";

vi.init("1.2.1.1");
Install.StartInstall("Functional: f_macpatch_exe", "/f_macpatch_exe", vi, 0);
f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "f_macpatch_exe");
err = Install.Patch(regName, vi, jarSrc, f, "SimpleText", true);
Install.LogComment("Install Patch = " + err);

RESULT:
The file is patched successfully.  The Install.log appears correct and accurate.
The Version registry shows the expected absolute pathname "f_macpatch_exe".  But
a dump of this node shows nothing.

EXPECTED RESULT:
A dump of the node shows a leaf "macpatch_exe/SimpleText" complete with
RefCount, Path, and Version.

As a non-Netscape-employee, I have no idea what this bug means, but I suspect
that it's no longer relevant. 

Resolved?

Patching is a feature that has not been implemented.  At one time it was
considered, and this bug was a result of it partially working.  This bug is only
relevant if the Patching feature is going to be pursued.
