nspluginwrapper is the issue & the bug reports are full of segfaults:

This one is pretty active:
[npviewer.bin crashed with SIGSEGV - started in 2007]

What you might do is have a look at your ~/.xsession-errors file to see
if you can spot issues there. Mind you, if you decide to post the file,
please use pastebin instead of the list:
Open the file:
$ gedit ~/.xsession-errors
select all & paste. Then advise of the url.
