Ahhh!!!!  So that's it!  I had eliminated IPv6 and several other things,
but still the window becomes unresponsive.

I do have the flashblock plugin installed.  I never checked to see it it
was still 'active'.  I'll have to see if _that_ is the problem -- versus
flash itself.

Exact same version levels here -- on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Nope.  32-bit here.

Everything else here seems ok v-a-v flash: Konqueror, Opera, Chrome --
even Epiphany.

I've seen _no_ complaint (yet) of this in the usenet forums.
Interesting that the first complaint was here in the Trinity compound.
