Konqueror and Flash

Playing further with my shiny new Wheezy/Trinity system I tried
installing flash (yeah I know but users demand it).

Downloaded the latest and greatest (11.2 r202) from Adobe and copied to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Started Firefox and flash is detected and works.

Start Konqueror and although the plugin shows up in the 'Configure
Konqueror->Plugins' list it doesn't seem to work.

Trying I
get a javascript freezing popup....  clicking Continue brings the
javascript freezing popup again and again...  clicking Abort shows the
page without the Flash 'movie' or version numbers.

This page works fine in Firefox with the one and only
on my system.

I then tried deleting /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/,
enabling the nonfree repos and installed flashplugin-nonfree.

That installs the same (same checksum) and, as
expected, the results are identical.

So.... how does one get flash working with konqueror ??
