Yes, putting my 'Me, too!' here... Also on Gutsy [7.10] AMD64.  It
doesn't take long before I was hitting web sites, with Firefox, that
would cause this problem.  When it occurs, GNASH just starts chewing
through memory, allocating more and more.  Once it allocates all the
real memory, Ubuntu starts swapping out virtual memory.  When this
happens, the system slows to a crawl and the problem is hard to fix
because of the unresponsiveness.  Ubuntu will start swapping more and
more memory back and forth between virtual and actual memory without

This is a serious problem, and I caution against anyone installing
mozilla-plugin-gnash on AMD64 Ubuntu until it is resolved.
