1.) Create a new profile, and close the browser.
2.) Make the cert7.db file read only. (cert7.db or other files can be in use if 
psm.exe is for some reason still running)
3.) Start the Profile Manager and delete your new profile.
What is expected: That you would get a warning that deleting all of the files 
in the profile failed.
What happens: No warning.

This bug is an offshoot of bug 50774.  The instructions to reproduce as given 
there were more general so I'm repeating them below.  Note that you do not have 
to do anything like marking the files "read-only" as indicated in the 
instructions above.

1. Create a new profile and start browser
2. Do something that creates a cert
   (e.g. task->privacy->password-manager->change-password)
3. Visit a few pages so that a history.dat file is created
4. Exit browser
5. Restart in profile manager (e.g., mozilla -profilemanager)
6. Click on "manage profiles"
7. Select profile last used
8. Click on "delete profile"
9. Click on "delete files" in the dialog box that appears
10. Look at directory containing profile.  You will see that indeed all the 
other files got deleted but the cert files and history.dat did not.
It's posible this could be a security/privacy issue.

does the back-end to report errors even exist? if not, I guess a new bug should
be opened first against the Profile Manager back-end..

PSM is no longer a separate process. Invalid these days.
