Short Path Name W fails under some NTFS junctions
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.
btw: bug 476106 fixes a similar bug for all installers / uninstallers.
