Bug 817881 moved the test plugin to a new location so that, I believe, Metro could test with it.

This broke Thunderbird's content-tabs Mozmill tests because our test profiles were no longer having the test plugin automatically installed.

In bug 841996, I added a --plugin-path parameter to runtest.py and runtestlist.py, and modified the mozmill and mozmill-one Make targets to pass $(DIST)/plugins as this path.

Can we modify Buildbot to execute Thunderbird's Mozmill tests in the same way, by passing $(DIST)/plugins to runtestlist.py?

If this can be done, can we also do a staging build to see if this change, plus the change in bug 841996 actually fixes the tests? (It seems to fix it locally, fwiw).
