When do the restrictions of 3 weeks start when 17 Tammuz is on Shabbos (e.g. this year)?

Do they start motzei shabbos (already 18 Tammuz), since the 17 Tammuz is technically on shabbos or do they still start with the fast on Sunday morning?

(Of course, this question is only according to those who hold that the restrictions, such as not getting a haircut, generally start with the fast and not on the night of the 17th of Tammuz.)

Rav Moshe Feinstein (Igrot Moshe OC 1:168) holds that in general one can have a wedding on the night of 17 Tammuz when necessary, but says in that same teshuva that for sure when the fast is Nidche that you can't have a wedding Saturday night. (I assume all other restrictions follow.)

I was wondering if the other restrictions of the fast(showering with hot water) starts at night when nidche? –  sam Jul 8 '12 at 2:44
    
@sam That I doubt because while the Three Weeks have started, the fast has not. I don't see why one would differentiate between eating and bathing. –  Double AA Jul 8 '12 at 4:25
