If there are no items to import, don't bother asking the question.
This supports a change to ubiquity to not always show the migration-
assistant page.

* Several fixes from Olivier Blin of Mandriva:
  - Close file descriptors when they're no longer needed.
  - Move a closedir() call, it can free data returned by readdir() too
    early. It leads to path corruption in some cases.
  - Fix a segfault with files with no extension.
  - Remove a spurious directory creation, with uninitialized name.
  - Fix Windows 2000 migration, by not trying to import music if not
  - Fix detection of Windows-NT-like registry path in ma-search-users, by
    splitting and reusing WINNT code from utils.c
  - Reimplement copy using read/write (like cp) to handle large files,
    since we can't mmap() (twice) large files in memory.
  - fix segfault by zeroing buffers for strcat.
  - Improve WINNT patch to factorize user registry location as well.
  - Vista profile directories support. Get profiles directory from
    registry for ma-search-items and ma-import as well ("Documents and
    Settings" is not correct in Vista), this also allows us to read the
    user registries.
  - Vista users support. Filter Public and Default users for Vista (from
    registry keys). Filter "Default User" key in Vista (it is a junction
    to Default). Do not segfault if keys are missing.
* More efficient and less error-prone device substring extraction.
* Set the locale to C when using expr.

* Use + instead of : for a replacement character as it is explicitly
  allowed by debconf policy.
* Look in .purple for Pidgin settings as well.

14. By Evan on 2008-01-24

* Copy NTFS mount fix.
* Removed dead ubiquity-specific code in ma-ask.
* Cleaned up ma-ask and ma-apply.
* Fix potential bugs where RET could get set to an error description and
  then be used as the answer to other questions.
* Add the user to the groups specified by user-setup-udeb.

13. By Evan on 2007-10-15

Added a short timeout and retry to unmounting to accomodate slow umounts
(LP: #135149).

12. By Evan on 2007-10-09

* Move initialize_registry_paths call later to avoid situations where
  other needed variables may not be set yet, causing m-a to fail.
* Fix logging.
* Fix IFS handling around call to expr.

[ Colin Watson ]
* In the Windows case in mount_os:
  - Look in /proc/mounts, not /proc/partitions.
  - Look in /proc/mounts before /etc/mtab.
  - Make sure to select only the first mountpoint for a given device (in
    case of bind mounts).

10. By Evan on 2007-07-31

* Handle more than one installed copy of Windows (LP: #97081).
* Error if unable to mount Linux partitions.
* Bump installer-menu-item to 6400.
* Close directories in ma-search-users.
* Don't unmount devices when we can avoid having to.
* Look for registry files case-insensitively.
* Quote arguments to add_user (LP: #123425).
* Use stat instead of the DT_ macros to avoid issues with fuse.
* Add a debug log.

9. By Evan on 2007-04-05

Proper grep for mounted devices. (LP: #99004)

8. By Evan on 2007-03-27

* Possible fix for ostype not getting set in the -ask and -apply
  scripts. Also added some temporary debugging information.
  (LP: #93197)
* If the /home partition device doesn't exist under the same name in
  the running kernel, fail gracefully and continue to the next OS.
  (LP: #94878)
* Added more logging and crash partial recovery.
* Gracefully fail and continue on items where a non C: drive letter
  comes into play. (LP: #95422)
* Don't import Windows default bookmarks. Import, but don't set
  "Bliss" as the default wallpaper.
