Problem is that, on Hardy, flash sound cooperates more reliably with
pulseaudio if you have libflashsupport installed, but at the same time
this makes firefox crash more often on flash sites.

The upside is that since Intrepid, libflashsupport is not needed anymore
and flash sound is reliable nevertheless.
