I think you're onto something there. Why are there two scripts at all? And
why is there now an /etc/alternatives/mozilla entry that is not used by
anything, pointing to a non-existent /usr/bin/mozilla-1.2?

I suspect that it is supposed to be like this:

  /usr/bin/mozilla:          symlink to /etc/alternatives/mozilla
  /etc/alternatives/mozilla: symlink to /usr/bin/mozilla-1.2.1
  /usr/bin/mozilla-1.2.1:    mozilla startup script

This seems like it would lead to correct behavior when you run mozilla.
