#61 All kinds of problems with 0.8.1

I'm having two major problems with 0.8.1.

First, even if I delete ~/.mozilla, start up, convert (or dont) my 4.x profile, after quitting and starting again, its asking me to convert my profile again.

Second, following the instructions in the release notes exactly for encrypting information, if the first password I try to encrypt is my IMAP password mozilla crashes. The sequence is

-asks for IMAP password, I give and check "remember" box. -asks for PSM password, I give, moz crashes.

This too is after deleting ~/.mozilla.

I've never had anywhere this much trouble with a daily build.

Any ideas? Anyone else seeing this?
