Linux only. afternoon build. 2000-04-21-13-M16.
1. Download stub installer: mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-installer.tar.
2. gzip it. Then tar extract (tar -xvf).
3. Run installer. In Installer wizard, enter another directory to install to.
4. Finish wizard install.
5. Check console window.
Results: Get msg: "Load FAILED with error: <unknown; can't get error from NSPR.
It's hanging at "WEBSHELL+ = 1". A couple of "JS Component Loader" warnings.
Note directory problem: If you check in /chrome subdirectories, we have a folder 
called "conten" (truncated) with a *nested* folder "content". It should just be 
Examples: /chrome/communicator/conten/content/*.
Expected: /chrome/communicator/content/*
Try also /chrome/editor, /chrome/global, /chrome/messenger, /chrome/navigator.
I did change these to ../content, then relaunched app, but it still hanged. Will 
investigate further with unzipped xpis. We'll see if there's a packaging issue.

folder "content" is getting truncated as "conten" on linux during install

I checked the packager file, and didn't see anything that would cause this 
problem to happen under every subdir in chrome

Is this something caused by nsIFiles changes?

Yes, this first showed up on dbragg's nsIFile branch.  I thought it went away as 
of yesterday?  

Cathleen, what build did you use?  

David, I think we had concluded we should mark this wroksforme.  Please concur 
or justify against.  Thanks.

Dave, can you help verify with today's build?

You probably won't be able to verify this with today's build since the installer 
is broken due to a different reason (bug 37086).  I might have a fix for this so 
hopefully you'll be able to verify this in tomorrow's builds.
