Nope, it's sitting there (fat, dumb and happy).

Also, if it was missing I would expect to always get the "include is not 
defined" error.  Instead, the exception goes away when Mozilla is running _and_ 
chrome://jslib/content has be performed in it (either a 2nd window/tab).  If 
both steps aren't followed, then the exception is thrown.

granted, but other stuff that was working has now stopped under the same 
conditions (simple test pages).

I discovered the problem in something that was working successfully Friday.  I'd 
shut my machine down for the weekend and, when I went to start my development 
again, I had Mozilla running but (not surprisingly) hadn't done "chrome:...".
