Fair enough. When I originally noticed the problem, it actually *was* conce=
rning a machine running linux-flashplugin7. However there are a few boxes h=
ere with version 6 installed, one of which relates to my subsequent post ab=
out the fact that the work-around I found for linux-flashplugin7 doesn't wo=
rk for version 6.
I will remove version 6, and install version 7.
Thanks for the time.
