I believe this was a glitch that occurred while testing changes to automate
talkback builds. The gigantic builds have been removed from the ftp staging
area, and hopefully this morning's release build will be correctly sized.

Judging from the size of builds at
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mozilla/tinderbox-builds/CREATURE/
things are getting properly stripped.

I will mark this fixed when the daily builds come out this morning in an
appropriate size.

drat, something i changed for building talkback is preventing the symbols from
getting stripped before shipment. Investigating (in the meantime, running a
build on a system that seems to have produced reliable builds into experimental
directories).

We should have a nightly build in "nightly" with talkback by 1pm Pacific time.
