Apparently the Mobile tree has something called "Win32 Fennec Desktop mozilla-central nightly" which is capable of building, but on the other trunk-like trees, there's a "WINNT 5.2 Mobile Desktop {tree} nightly" which has been burning every night for as long as we retain logs, from an "nsinstall.exe: Bad file number" error that looks rather like bug 515513, except WINNT 5.2 shouldn't be throwing UAC prompts.

It's not a good thing to encourage people to expect there to be red they should just ignore, so I've hidden that column on TraceMonkey and Electrolysis, but if it's something we don't care about, we should probably stop wasting the resources to build it.

Stuart: is this something we should spend cycles to debug, or should we turn these off on Tracemonkey and Electrolysis?

The main difference on Electrolysis is ipc is turned on; ipc is turned off on m-c.

Ran into this and figured it out while working on bug 527794.
Summary: Whatever "WINNT 5.2 Mobile Desktop" is, it has been burning on Tracemonkey and Electrolysis forever → "WINNT 5.2 Mobile Desktop" needs to build on vs9 in buildbot-0.8.0-land

This will actually block moving mobile off of 07x.

shorten windows mobile desktop paths

Thought of this while I was out. Simple fix for an annoying bug.

Lukas may have this covered in bug 614254 if this is the culprit (running a staging build atm).

However, I don't see the value in putting the mobile branch in the builddir; we'd save 6 characters in the dir with her patch if we take it out.

Shortening the build dir fixes this bug =P
I'm going to let Lukas land her r+'ed patch.

Yup, fixed by bug 614254.
