Build: 1999-12-14-08-M12(MAC)

1. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click on drop-down button and choose
   f_addsubcomp_macsmpltxt and click Trigger case button
2. Lock this installed file
3. From http://jimbob/trigger2.html, click on drop-down button and choose
   f_addsubcomp_macsmpltxt_inus and click Trigger case button
4. Exit mozilla
5. Unlock locked file
6. Relaunch mozilla

Install.StartInstall("Functional:f_addsubcomp_macsmpltxt_inus",
"f_addsubcomp_macsmpltxt", "1.0.1.5", 1);
f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "simpletext_subdir");
Install.AddSubcomponent(regName, "1.0.1.5", jarSrc, f, jarSrc, true);

RESULT:
From the directory simpletext_subdir, the second installation created a file
named "decode" (126K).  The first installation still shows file, SimpleText
(63K).  No scheduling of replacement appears to have taken place.

EXPECTED RESULT:
The 63K version of SimpleText is replaced by the 126K version of SimpleText.

NOTE:
The other case to investigate as well is triggering "AddSubcomponent" from
http://puma/x.  "ascSmartUpdate.txt" will be installed.  Locking this file and
triggering "AddSubcomponent" again will create "ascSmartUpdate.txt-1".  But
unlocking "ascSmartUpdate.txt", and relaunching mozilla will not schedule a
replacement.  This case may be different because it is not installed to a
subdirectory.
Target Milestone: M17
Post beta -- user would have had to do this explicitly. plain "in-use" files
appear to work.

An older bug we have lived with.  Also, it's an edge case.  Recommend nsbeta1-.

This bug is targeted at a Mac classic platform/OS, which is no longer supported
by mozilla.org. Please re-target it to another platform/OS if this bug applies
there as well or resolve this bug.

I will resolve this bug as WONTFIX in four weeks if no action has been taken.
To filter this and similar messages out, please filter for "mac_cla_reorg".
Very old bug on a no longer supported platform with testcases which do not work
(since they were behind the Netscape firewall).

WONTFIX, Daniel?
Mac CFM RIP.
