Details

It looks like a few days ago a comm-central 3.2 builder had Thunderbird die during the content-policy tests:

http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=ThunderbirdTest/1269853497.1269854802.21009.gz

It looks like my exception handling or what not did not properly kill the vncserver and it has broken all runs on that builder since then.  I hadn't really meant for vncserver to be active on those boxes... I expect it's triggering because the builder is probably already running inside a vncserver...

Anywho, I'll make a bustage fix that causes it to forcibly kill the existing VNC server at startup time if it has trouble spawning.  (Or maybe always?  Something.)
fix pushed to comm-central:

This has brought the ThunderbirdTest runner back from the grave.  But it came back angry!

Luckily it was angry before the grave too.
