Re: Problem/Blocker: ~/.mozilla blocks login

Okay, today I had a more meaningful error message from an etch based system. 
And I got a lucky hand and happened to remove the right file at once:
ls -l .mozilla/firefox/xy22.default/
	1656725 Dec  1 09:32 XPC.mfasl 

In another case this file had a timestamp of Dec 10, but I am quite sure that 
the problem didn't exist a week ago with this user.

The DCOP error mesage reads: could not read network connection list.
Please make sure dcopserver is running.

This problem occurs on LTSP and workstation - in most cases I only find the 
time to delete .mozilla as a whole.
