Yes, that's what this line of code is supposed to do:
prefMan.setValue("warnedWindowsEditor", true);

Which worked for me (W2K w/ FF 1.0.2, and again just now on FF 1.0.3).

... I noticed just now that you don't mention
"greasemonkey.pointThreeMigrated", which is another value you should

Curiouser and curiouser.

Can you please navigate to your config.xml file in your GM install directory?

It's at \profile-dir\{e4a8a97b-f2ed-450b-b12d-ee082ba24781}\chrome\greasemonkey\content\scripts\config.xml

Then attach that (or post a fragment, if you've privacy concerns).

I'm interested in seeing the format of that file, because without the
pointThreeMigrated entry, your install should be puking all over
itself. :)
