Hi,

in my xulrunner appli, I've one extension installed as a symlink from extensions/ to another place.
For some reason, that symlink became broken.
And now, every time I start my appli, I've following error in my js console:

Error: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520008 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ALREADY_EXISTS) [nsIFile.create]"  nsresult: "0x80520008 (NS_ERROR_FILE_ALREADY_EXISTS)"  location: "JS frame :: file:///home/arno/mozilla/obj-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/xulrunner/dist/bin/components/nsExtensionManager.js :: DirInstallLocation_getItemLocation :: line 1160"  data: no]
Source File: file:///home/arno/mozilla/obj-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/xulrunner/dist/bin/components/nsExtensionManager.js
Line: 1160
Would be interested to know if this is still a problem with the new extension manager.
Tested with one of my own extensions and we don't show up an exception anymore. Instead a message is displayed in the error console:

LOG addons.xpi: Ignoring entry which isn't a directory: /data/firefox/test-profile/extensions/mozmill-crowd@qa.mozilla.org

I would say that we can call it fixed. Due to a missing bug# I will set this bug to WFM.
