Description

19 years ago
Build:
  Win32 June 8 Seamonkey build (1999-06-08-08-m7) installed on Compaq P200
running Win98 and WinNT 4.0.

Problem:
  Talkback application fails to start up when you crash.  When you start
Apprunner, the apps MS-DOS windows displays an error message that Talkback did
not initialize.
If you try to manually to run Talkback. it fails to launch when you double click
on the Talkback application icon.  No error message occurs when try to manual run
it.

Note: in yesterday May 7 seamonkey win32 build 1999060708, this problem did not
occur.  Also, this problem does not occur on todays PPC seamonkey 1999060808
build.  Esther Goes has seen this problem on her windows system.

Steps to reproduce problem:
0) I deleted my mozregistry.dat
1) Install the Win32 Seamonkey build
   (I manually downloaded the base.zip and uncompressed it)
2) Double click on Talkback application
   It briefly flashes on the screen then disappears. It is not running on the
windows taskbar.

Note: when you crash in Seamonkey the talkback screen does not appear.  I
typically run win98 and I always crash the first time I start apprunner and see
the talkback screen.  I thought it was strange...

This problem happens when the fullcircle server is down when the build tries
generating master.ini. I'm not going to bother respinning today's bits, this
will go away as the hardware/software is upgraded and made stable (ok, who am i
kidding?). Seriously, though, this will happen less frequently, and almost
certainly not tomorrow.
