I don't see one similar to this.  Searched for open bugs with description =

don't need to fix this for beta

I figured out where this is happening - it's in the prefs code of all places. it
assumes this pref is for a directory.... I'll fix that when I fix up prefs.
Depends on: 21135

not really a beta stopper.

Mail Review recommends this bug as beta2 stopper.  Adding nsbeta2 keyword.

I disagree that this is a beta stopper, this only happens if you manually type a 
signature path... if you choose one via the file picker, you don't hit this 
problem.

Well, at least we got some new information in the bug :-)

I doubt many people will type in the value.  Removing the nsbeta2 nomination on
the assumption this isn't affecting many users.

over to sspitzer, staying on the CC because this is kind of a prefs issue (with
GetFilePref())

this is probably a dup of #66668, or vice versa.

over to racham, since he owns #66668
