Uninstall dialog is shown on restart after updating to current nightly.

Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2pre) Gecko/20081012 Minefield/3.1b2pre

FWIW-Using the Minefield 20081011 nightly from its zip file-- that is extracting it to a folder and running it--then updating to the 20081012 nightly via "Help > Check for Updates..." the uninstall wizard dialog does not come up. However, if using the installer .exe file for the 20081011 nightly and the update process, the uninstall wizard dialog does come up.

1. Install the 20081011 nightly using the installer .exe file.
2. Start the browser.
3. Update via the "Help > Check for Updates..." process.
4. Restart the browser when prompted.

After the installation progress window closes the uninstall wizard dialog will open. The browser opens as expected and otherwise does not appear to be affected.

So far, happens all the time.

The uninstall wizard dialog should not open.

P.S. Also, I have read in the cited thread that Shredder is apparently also seeing this problem.

Updating from the 10/10/2008 nightly does not have the issue, updating from the 10/11/2008 build does. 

Too bad we don't have a larger hourly archive.

Fixed by the partial backout of bug 453733. I will be re-adding a fixed version of the change I backed out to the cleanup work I am doing on the restart code.

The cleanup of the restart code will happen in bug 459615
The uninstall wizard is still shown after updating to the new nightly in Thunderbird 3.

If I've understood correctly the bug is caused by the uninstalled version, not by the newly installed one.
So you'll see tomorrow if it's really fixed in today nightly.
You could test that by taking any hourly build after about Sun Oct 12 19:00 2008 PDT, and updating to the Oct 13th nightly.
Just tested with an hourly using changeset:  
Oct 12, 2008  20:09 hrs PDT build

Did not see the 'Uninstall Wiz' on using: Tools->Check for Update

So this is indeed fixed it seems, going from nightly-to-nightly will be next, and final test this is fixed.
Changes to the updater require it to be updated before any fixes can be seen due to bug 366846. I verified this with both a custom build and the nightly using a custom update xml that this is fixed so reclosing.
