User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_3; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.22.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.5 Safari/531.22.7

When using Composer, Seamonkey doesn't check for automatic updates until I try to open a second file. Then the update dialog opens at the same time as the Open File dialog, and the application locks. Force Quit does not work. Shutdown does not work. The only way I get out of the state is to unplug the computer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Composer as soon as you start Seamonkey
2.Open an HTML and make some edits
3.Attempt to open a second file wile the first file is open.
4. Watch the program lock up.
Actual Results:  
Application locks up. If I click on any option in either of the two dialog boxes, nothing happens.

Expected Results:  
I can click on options in the dialog boxes and keep working.
A freeze of the OS would be a bug in the OS, always !

But there is the known bug 476541 on OS X with a sheet and dialog that sound like a dupe. DO you think it's ok to mark it as dupe ?

Please test on SeaMonkey 2.x, reports on 1.x are not taken any more. As long
as it can't be reproduced on a supported version (2.0.x or higher right now),
this is INCOMPLETE.
