Build ID: 2.0b2 - > 2.0.0.5

Summary: Upgrade/update from 2.0b2 to 2.0.0.5 RTM leaves "Beta 2" in shortcuts and directory name.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install Thunderbird 2.0b2 from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/2.0b2/win32/en-US/Thunderbird%20Setup%202.0%20Beta%202.exe
2. Open channelprefs.js and change the channel to "release" from "beta"
3. Do Help | Check for Updates
4. When prompted, download and install
5. Examine the desktop shortcut, the application's directory name, and the Windows start menu shortcuts.

Expected Results:

My expectation is that the paths and shortcuts would change to "Mozilla Thunderbird".

Actual Results:

The desktop shortcut, the application's path, and the Windows Start menu options all read, "Mozilla Thunderbird Beta 2".

Note that the build ID, application binary, and titlebar are all fine.
I'm pretty sure this is works as designed.

Especially the directory path names. 

If there's an application string that still says Beta 2, that would be a bug. But any short cut paths or directory names in the menus, should match the name of the directory you originally installed the product into.
Yeah, just filing for completeness (for the record, and all).
