Build: 2001-01-24-13-Mtrunk (MAC)

1. Launch browser
2. Open 
ftp://sweetlou/products/client/seamonkey/macos/8.x/ppc/2001-01-24-13-Mtrunk/xpi/  
or any other ftp server with xpi files
3. Click on any xpi file to initiate download and installation
4. Click OK button from confirmation dialog

RESULT:
Download dialog appears.  Progress meter displays.  Download dialog dismisses.  
Installation does not occur.  Install.log is not created and files are not 
installed.

EXPECTED RESULT:
Files are installed before Download dialog dismisses.  Install.log is created.

NOTE:
The Mac build from 1/23/2001 works fine.  Linux and Windows work fine.  
Triggering from http://jimbob/mac is supported, so it seems to be ftp specific.

This works for me.  It appears the problem has automagically gone away.
