1) download 4/23/2000 installer from sweetlou ftp://sweetlou/products/client/5.0x/windows/32bit/x86/2000-04-23-16-M16/ 2) run installer 3) select a new directory to install into 4) at the end of install, reboot dialog comes up, asking for permission to restart. Sean and I looked at the install log, and found that \defaults\profile\panels.rdf is getting installed by both browser.xpi and mail.xpi. The second install from mail.xpi caused a replace of the first install. This normally shouldn't be a problem, and should not require a reboot because the file is not in use.
fixed. The problem was in nsLocalFileMac.cpp and nsLocalFileWin.cpp. The ::Exists() function was caching what it found ealier. So when the file was renamed from underneath it, it didn't know to look skip the cache. So all I did was call MakeDirty() right before the function that performed the actual checking. This forced it to invalidate the cache. I assume this was also happening on the mac because it was calling the same set of functions as under Windows. Mac should also be fixed.
