 On Windows, if Meek is enabled, the updater fails while trying to copy
 files to the staged "update applied" directory.  Failure occurs because
 the file Browser/TorBrowser/Data/Browser/profile.meek-http-
 helper/parent.lock is in use.  The updater will fallback to an unstaged
 update and users will be prompted to restart to apply the update.  This
 works but a large updated/ directory is left behind which will not be
 deleted until another update is staged.

 We can fix this problem by skipping this parent.lock file inside the
 updater when copying files.
