not sure who should look at this bug. It happened in both 7/16 and 7/17 embedding builds. Saw this assertion for mfcEmbed, winEmbed, and testEmbed. 1. Download latest source. 2. cd to embedding app dir like /mozilla/embedding/qa/testembed. 3. build the app. nmake -f makefile.win 4. cd /mozilla/dist/WIN32_D.OBJ/bin 5. run the app from the dos shell (e.g. testembed.exe). Result: Get assertion: "event queue is null: 'mEventQueue', file /mozilla/htmlparser/src/nsParser.cpp line 366. I press Retry to debug, but nothing happens. Ignore keeps returning the assertion. Pressing abort quits the app after getting another assert: "nsDOMEvent not thread-safe": 'owningThread == NS_CurrentThread()', file /mozilla/xpcom/base/nsDebug.cpp line 528. The workaround is to remove the component.reg file from /bin dir. Then relaunch.
