You can crash Flash9 on FreeBSD any time just by visiting
and playing any random video, 100% success guaranteed.

By the way, Flash9 is buggy like hell even when running natively on
Linux, I can't confirm that by myself, but have some old coworkers in
various web development companies and they say their clients complain
every other day that their new fancy Flash9 presentations (thus
requiring Flash9 plugin) crash Linux browsers like stock market in 1929.
Of course, it's still much worse under Linuxulator.
