	Flash7 with native browsers were unstable for a long time.
	So I had no motivation to commit my patch to source tree.
	However, in recently, flash7 was updated to 7.0r61.  I expect
	that flash7 will be stable, and I'm testing 7.0r61 now.

	Now I'm research why libflashplayer.so cannot find gtk_major_version
	function.  I think that dlsym(3) should be similar behavior
	like Linux one:-).  So I'll modify dlsym(3) to become behavior
	of Linux's dlsym(3).
