prefpanels.css is not present in the mac classic skin, yet communicator.css still includes it. This causes the app to stall at startup in Mac. What I don't understand is why this bug only shows up when *not* using jar files. Do missing CSS files not cause stalls when using jars?
nsbeta3 keyword. Trivial fix, risks are high (unpredictable behaviour with missing CSS files, and this affets the first window the user sees).
Erm, "risks" there is "risks if not fixed"

Nominating for ++. Removing this one line from one file must be done and I recommend doing this for nsbeta3 because it fixes some really nasty skin switching bugs. Low risk high win.
Accepting. Working on this today.
I have this ready in my tree .
We need this on the branch too; it kills mac classic skin otherwise.
ok will check into both locations...
ok now fishing for a reviewer and approver.
