Playing around here with rpms of the various flashplayer9 releases, I find
that 9-r60 does this, 9-r48 works but may need to hit the second story before
it does, and an even older 9-r31 also works about half the time.
After finding the r48 worked, where 6 weeks ago it didn't on a cnn video, I
put 9-r60 back in and got this error message again. As a beta, I wonder if
adobe put an expiration in it. With this binary only crap, who knows...
Anyway, I'm working here with the 9-r48 version of libflashplayer.so
