Logging functionality built into RegCommon.cpp is in fact applicable to not install scenarios.
We need to make sure that no logging is performed for normal startup.

At the moment every time plugin is launched about 1k of data is appended to the 

This seems to be mostly records of 2 types - loading Jqs settings and call to shouldPromptForUpdateCheck.

SUGGESTED FIX http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u18/6903282.0

EVALUATION As short term solution we should just remove loggin from these 2 calls. In longer term we need to make sure that installer-specific logging does not affect normal runs!
