	Well, in short, no-joy. I've updated linux_base-8, reinstalled
	linuxpluginwrapper--(I may have the wrong flash installed, but 
	no biggie).

	With mozilla on my Thinkpad, it simply exits.  linux-mozilla
	on the TP does  fire up mplayerplugin.  But it prints 
	"Stopped" on the GUI display; to stdout or stderr it prints
	href=(null); On the browser URL display it shows:

	I get the "Stopped" string on both my laptop and here in my
	offfiice with the FBSD mozilla, linux-mozilla, and firefox.
	This is what Isee on my xterm on tao:

p5 23:40 <tao> [6596]
(Gecko:40836): Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_property_get(): length value has
wrapped in calculation (did you pass G_MAXLONG?)
LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library
/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6/ [Shared object
"" not found, required by ""]
checking to see if we need to make a button

	If I have to pkg_delete anything I'd rather delete the linux
	ports.  Don't know if ths would help.  aNybody have any ideas
	why mplayerplugin just quits?  (I'd be pulling out my hair if 
	I had enough left:-)  (*mumble*)
