[webkit-dev] Directory for Safari 3 for Windows plugins that
isn't in Program Files?

I've filed it in both Apple Radar (5430584) and WebKit Bugzilla (15053).
Quickly poking through Trac, addPluginsFromRegistry() in
PluginDatabaseWin.cpp looks to be the culprit; it's definitely only
looking at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
Thanks everyone for the help.
