Is it that hard to type 'firefox -g', alias firefox="firefox -g", or
whatever, and use it that way for a few days to see if you can
get a trace?  I'm just wondering if it has the same problem
as linuxpluginwrapper, or bad assumptions about mutexes
being recursive or unlocking one you don't own.

Most folks I know use the linuxpluginwrapper so we don't have
any experience with the native flash player.  I think I recall
trying it and it not working, hence the use of linuxpluginwrapper.
