I think this bug is related to bug 212877. Just like this bug, the
people there report having 64-bit SMP (multicore/multiprocessor) systems
and it was brought by Mozilla Firefox 3.0 Beta 5. The difference,
however, is that bug 212877 relates to Mozilla Firefox crashing, not
just Flash alone.
On April 6th, I decided to test if the Firefox 3 Beta 5 update was
causing the problem. I had not upgraded to Firefox Beta 5 (didn't check
for updates), but found the update to Beta 5. I updated all other
(irrelevant) packages, except firefox, firefox-3.0, firefox-3.0-gnome-
support, and firefox-gnome-support. I then opened Firefox from the
console (to see any error messages) and proceeded to test extensively
and try to make nspluginwrapper and/or flashplugin crash. This including
opening many Youtube videos as tabs, and refreshing random Youtube tabs.
Firefox did slow down dramatically, and it did "freeze" for a few
moments, but Firefox/flashplugin/nspluginwrapper did not crash. The
Youtube videos continued to play. No error messages relevant to
nspluginwrapper/flashplugin were on the console.
I then upgraded the specified packages. Once again, I opened Firefox
from the console (to see any error messages) and proceeded to test
extensively and try to make nspluginwrapper and/or flashplugin crash.
Nearly immediately, without opening more than one or two Youtube video
tabs, the flashplugin crashed and nspluginwrapper outputed errors on the
I think, unless someone knows the solution, we should narrow done what
difference in Firefox 3.0 from Beta 4 to Beta 5 caused the problem. I
think I should look at Swiftweasel as well.
