hmmm, I'll try that in a couple of days (I want to make _some_ progress today).

I tried shifting the jslib directory from my profile to the mozilla.org hierarchy.  After editing 
chrome.rdf et. al., the jslib splash screen worked fine (which implied I'd successfully moved jslib) 
but I still had the same symptoms when I ran the test xul.

I also went and added every permission I could find (all seven of them) to the test script.  No joy 
there either.

the only other thing I can think of is that I'm running the test xul as a resource:
mozilla -chrome resource:/Projects/test.xul

but since everything runs fine after the "mother may I"s...I don't think it's me.

I think that is an excellent idea.  That allows some degree of flexibility in the install.
