Build Identifier: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2004-02-19-08-trunk/FirefoxSetup.exe

When installing this build into a new clean directory, the installer crashes
near the end of the installation, just before installing the default
language/language pack information.

WinXP reports it as a problem with xpinstal.dll.

I have also replicated this crash on a Win2000 system.

If you do this install on top of an existing installation, no crash occurs.

Attached are the installer logs from my crash.  The last message on the
installer dialog is the US English Defaults.
This may turn out to be a dup of bug 234804.
Making this (tentatively) dependent on 234804.
Depends on: 234804

I just tried to install build 2004-02-20-08 on WinXP Home, and I got the same
results.

I'm seeing this with seamonkey nightly as well.  I'm going to attach wizard and
install log now.

Could this block 1.7a?  Or has a candidate already been chosen? (I'm out of
touch on the SeaMonkey release schedule).
There is already a Seamonkey bug on this, 234804.

This bug is dependent on the Seamonkey bug (for now).  It may be that this bug
will turn out to be a dup of that one.
For details about the cause of this crash, see my comments:

I've stepped through the crash in the debugger. For this deflenus.xpi package
ONLY we end up using UNIX style path delimiters instead of windows style path
delimiters. This is what causes the crash.
