 Before restart, XRE_PROFILE_PATH is set to the profile path. See:

 This causes the SelectProfile() function to use that profile (and
 therefore our migration code never gets a chance to run). See:

 The right fix is probably to ignore the XRE_PROFILE_PATH env variable if
 it contains the path of the old default profile location

 gk or boklm: We should add something to the TB 6.0a5 blog post to let
 people know to expect this problem (they should quit and start TB again to
 fix things).
