Frank mentioned that the settings where perfectly set. In fact I could
reproduce it with current unstable iceape and found:

.. that running iceape from dist/bin/ does works properly, while
running /usr/bin/iceape does indeed not honor that setting.

I copied dist/bin/run-mozilla.sh manually to /usr/lib/iceape/
as well as xpfe/bootstrap/iceape to /usr/bin/.

Done, gone.

So obviously, the bug comes from our hand-tailored 
debian/iceape-runner script :/.

... this makes me wonder, why do we maintain our own ramp-up script?
What are the benefits (or bugs-fixed) from doing this? Maybe we should
just use the original scripts?
