A freshly installed copy of Neoplanets new technology preview (with Gecko
and Trident) also exhibits this behavior. So do all of the subsequent
post-M4 mozilla installs, even after completely removing the previous mozilla
folders. Which leads me to believe that a) it is related to Gecko or its support
libraries b) it has something to do with stuff that gets installed or registered
somewhere outside the mozilla folder.

german,  still see this?
try removing your c:\windwows\mozregristry.dat file and restart.
it would be good if you could also post the console output to help
pinpoint where in the start sequence your failing...

works for me now, using Chris workaround to manually remove the mozregistry.dat
file.
