(Please see extension/theme manager submission from me this date.)

When I encountered the extension/theme manager error, I tried to run
Thunderbird.Exe -ProfileManager, which gives this error:

 XML Parsing Error: undefined entity

 Location: chrome://mozapps/content/profile/profileSelection.xul
 Line Number 38, Column 1:


I then renamed the Thunderbird profile folder, and ran Thunderbird.Exe. This
created a new profile, but instead of starting Tbird, it sent the computer into
an infinite loop, requiring a reboot.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See details, above, please.

Expected Results:  
Should have been able to create a new profile and start Thunderbird, so that I
could further test the extension/theme manager error as reported in my other
submission this date.

I also see this on Linux and Windows 2000. It appeared in the Thunderbird 0.8
nightly (version 0.7+) after July 13. It did NOT appear on the July 13 build (0.8).

I was unable to start Thunderbird until I changed profiles.ini to make

I have to suspect the changes by bsmedberg on July 14th, but I can't put my
finger on it.

OK, someone just renamed mozilla/toolkit/locales to mozilla/toolket/locale
(doesn't appear in Changelog). I think this might have something to do with this ;)

At least a fresh 7-14 branch installer on a fresh Win 2003 does it.

This bug was mentioned in response to the MozillaZine formum post: "zip build
07-19-04-0.8 won't run"

Me: The windows 0.8 branch setup build from 2004-07-19 does not launch at all. I
have to kill the process in win2k task manager. Is that THIS bug?

This was caused by changes to the repackaging script, which doesn't recurse
subdirectories. Should be fixed now: (and I added a
warning about that in the file).

Appears to fixed on 0.8 nightly version 0.7+ (20040722).
vrfy'd fixed on the three main platforms (used -profilemanager) with 200411220x-0.9.
