Thanks; we are aware of this particular occurence.

swfdec has:
Xb-Npp-Name: Swfdec SWF player
Xb-Npp-Description: GNOME SWF player (http://swfdec.freedesktop.org/)

gnash has:
Xb-Npp-Name: Gnash SWF Player
Xb-Npp-Description: The GNU SWF Player (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/)

Problem is that there is not much space for the descript with the
current layout.

Do you have better Descriptions you would suggest? Also, I am not
really sure how do you describe the difference of gnash and swfdec in
just a few words for a normal user?
