Steps to reproduce:

Actual results:

Users have added a print icon in the toolbar of the mail window.
After upgrading, this icon no longer appears and has to be added again.

Expected results:

Icon should have remained as previously set.

Checked what happened in localstore.rdf
The buttons shown on the toolbare are stored in "currentset".
The name of the print button has arbitrarily been changed from button-print to print-button, causing it no longer to be recognized by the newer version.
All the other buttons still have a button-xxxxx name.

Please don't make arbitrary changes like this, it just annoys the users.

Jens, worth a release note?

FTR: Caused by bug 676991 which landed for SM 2.6.

> Jens, worth a release note?

Since I doubt we'll roll back the change (which would cause another round of the problem), I think that's probably all we can do (I won't keep the note forever, though). Otherwise, this bug can be closed.

[If anyone feels strongly about also including the note in the SM 2.9 or later relnotes, let me know. Otherwise it'll only be the above three relnotes which will include the note.]
