--deep won't find mozilla if it's been installed as a dependency of 
evolution and it's a dependency of nothing else in the world file, even 
levels below; it will simply slip through the cracks, as it were.

I had this experience when installing a new Gentoo system and having 
emerged mplayerplug-in; after unmerging it, an upgrade to mplayer 
appeared and emerge world -up --deep refused to see it.
