I tried it with notepad running in the background, and the same thing 
happens: mozybackup.exe shows up in the process list for ~3seconds then 
disappears and the console displays the fixme's that I posted in bug #12030.

If you have time to look into it that would be great! My knowledge of 
how services work is limited at best (still an undergrad, and I haven't 
taken an OS class yet).
