WinNT/2K/XP specific. Mozilla's user files are installed in C:\Documents and
Settings\%CURRENTUSR%\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\%USRDIR%\.
Mozilla keeps the user's Disk Cache Folder in a subdirectory called 'Cache'.
This becomes a problem for WinNT/2K/XP users with roaming profiles, that are
kept on a network server: When the user logs off the entire Mozilla disk cache
is copied to the network server (!)

By default Microsoft sets the roaming profile exclusion list as follows:
"ExcludeProfileDirs"="Local Settings;Temporary Internet Files;History;Temp". See
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon].

The Mozilla disk cache should probably be installed somewhere under the "Local
Settings" directory, which was meant to be automatically excluded from the
roaming user profiles, so that the cache is not copied to a network server when
the user logs off.
