Locked files not replaced after unlocked
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", "220.127.116.11", 1); f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "simpletext_subdir"); Install.AddSubcomponent(regName, "18.104.22.168", 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.
Post beta -- user would have had to do this explicitly. plain "in-use" files appear to work.
Summary: [PP]Locked files not replaced after unlocked → Locked files not replaced after unlocked

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.
