Description

Since phoenix and mozilla both use the same application name in splash.rc, it's
not possible to run one while the other is already running, since it just causes
the already-running instance to pop up a new window.

Just as an addendum: we should really create an easy way to fork this file and
link an application, without having to link individual object files from
xpfe/bootstrap or fork xpfe/bootstrap (perhaps a static library?).

I still can't launch mozilla (pref set to start mailnews) 
while phoenix is running.

(linux, mozilla-1.1, phoenix 20020907)

I have no problems launching phoenix while mozilla is running with todays
phoenix and seamonkey builds. I also have no problem launching mozilla while
phoenix is running. I tried launching mozilla -mail while phoenix was running
and it launched just fine. Tested Phoenix from tonight on win2K and rh null. 

Verified.

Hmm. That's interesting. 

Maybe I need to blow away both my ~/.phoenix and ~/.mozilla and start from
scratch. Will try.

A)   1.mozilla  2. phoenix.  Okay.
B)   1.phoenix  2. mozilla --mail.  Okay.
C)   1.phoenix. 2. mozilla.  Mozilla launches as Phoenix.
