Yeah, I wanted to blame sayrer, too, but backing bug 381357 out doesn't solve the problem. Given the heinous things we do to channels and principals, now I'm wondering about bug 415324.
Paging Mr. Sayre, Mr. Sayre to the Regression Penalty Box, please. Dunno how I could have failed to back out such a simple patch, but I apparently did fail, since from the http://hourly-archive.localgho.st/ Windows builds, the first build with the problem is 20080311 14:05, and http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox/1205269500.1205274891.30404.gz&fulltext=1 says the changes that picked up included an OS2 readme change and bug 381357, so I'm back to betting on it.
This should be release noted for Beta 5.
Rob: who should review this? Looks pretty small and simple, perhaps worth sneaking into B5 instead of relnote-ing.

hi rob, how close are you to completing the test? i'd like to nom this for blocking beta 5 if you can get it done soon, and up for review.
