I previously had a (more of less) working flash installation. Only
volume control was not working with flash. But now after doing the
update this morning, I got that error.

I guess there is some defected patch is the cause. Are there more people
with the same problem?

My system:

Laptop: Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo pa 1510, AMD Duo 1.6GHz, ATI Xpress 1100
(running with x200 driver)

Ubuntu 6.06

May be people facing same error can give information about their system.
This might help track down the bug.
