Unfortunately the real solution was not ready in time for SM 2.0 (it depends on code shared with Thunderbird and Firefox and requires some knowledge, thinking and testing to get it right). The Master Password prompt at startup, which can be disabled by setting the signon.startup.prompt pref to false, is meant as an interim solution for those who setup a Master Password (no prompt appears for those who didn't setup one). It works quite well if you don't let it expire. If you do the underlying problem (multiple simultaneous login prompts) may be exposed again. I didn't check; for now I can only suggest to not let it expire if you otherwise get into trouble.
