Not able to start mozilla from scratch

Steps to reproduce:
1) DL freshly baked mozilla
2) remove ".mozilla" from you home directory
3) start mozilla
4) Mozilla starts to build user profile

and it stops with the following message

Registering plugin 0 for: "*","All types",".*"
Registering plugin 0 for: "*","All types",".*"
Inside Migrate Profile routine.
start of pref migration
AutoMigration failed. Let's create a default 5.0 profile.
ProfileManager : CreateNewProfile
Profile Name: default
Profile Dir: /home/tina/.mozilla
Runtime mismatch, so leaking context!

And that it is...  Subsequent starts produce the same result.

NOTE: mozilla starts to create my profile from my existing NS4.x profile

On Linux systems with only 1 4.x profile, it will be 'migrated' automatically- 
that means that the 4.x profile will be copied to the .mozilla directory (you 
can work in both browsers - the profiles are separate)

Your 4.x profile may be corrupt.  I would suggest you try running from command 
line with Profile Manager option. 

./mozilla -profilemanager

if this launches, create a new profile
if new profile launches mozilla- we can go from there

Everything works just fine with mozilla 0.9...

but

mozilla 0.9 is a lot slower than 0.8...   but this is another topic
