TB1.5 RC1 Checks for Default Mail Client

Am I the first person to have a problem with Portable TB? Is it that good?

On the support page, you say that you have made modifications so that Tb doesn't check if it is the default mail client. I am using Portable Tb1.5 RC1, and everytime I run it in this library, I get asked if I want to set TB to be the default client....

Anyone else have this problem?

It may be...

This has happened with a couple of people. TB keeps track of the check in an odd way. I'm hoping to fix it with the RC2 release.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I'm going to have to babysit it
Unfortunately, Thunderbird makes the odd decision to keep track of whether you want it to ask if it's the default in the registry... not in the prefs.js like Firefox. Bad idea from a portability standpoint. So, I'll need to adjust the launcher to set the key not to check... run TB... wait around consuming RAM... and then set it back on close.
