In researching bug 456895 it is likely that GetShortPathNameW is failing in
some cases here
http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/suite/shell/src/nsWindowsShellService.cpp#396

This was added so users that had a shortpath from prior versions when upgrading would not be asked to set SeaMonkey as default after the upgrade. I
recommend removing this code.
