Gutsy, fglrx/xgl/compiz.

Flash apps in firefox are not responding to click events. They respond to mouseover, though, but without being able to simply click them I cannot interact with most flash windows.
This is very similar to the bug posted in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nspluginwrapper/+bug/108733, but it cannot be the same as my system is 32-bit (lg s1 laptop, intel T2500 processor) and does not use nswrapperplugin. The workaround suggested there, Shift+Click, does not work for me either. I believe this is some nasty dispute between Xgl and Flash.

This problem has reappeared in Karmic. I'm on an x86_64 installation.
Reproducing the bug: This is apparent in all youtube videos. It works fine without compiz.
