Flash on Rawhide

I've been having some minor issues with the proprietary Flash on Rawhide (32-bit).

It seems that whenever I make a flash file fullscreen, Firefox crashes. When running it through GDB, I get the following printed out just prior to the backtrace starting:

*** glibc detected *** /usr/lib/firefox-3.1b3/firefox: free(): invalid pointer: 0xa4958b00 ***

Is this possibly related to the recent malloc changes in glibc?

I would like to get a sense of how many people are experiencing the same crash. From conversation with others in #fedora-qa, it seems to be pretty widespread. It can be easily tested by visiting any video site (youtube, megavideo etc.), opening a video, and clicking the 'enlarge' or 'fullscreen' button.

I should note that I used this same version of Flash ( with no fulllscreen issues on Ubuntu prior to beginning to test Rawhide.

There is an existing bug in bugzilla about it, to which I've added my information. However, it doesn't seem to be drawing a lot of attention, and I think this is a fairly important bug to be quashed, since so many people use the proprietary flash.

Here is the bugzilla link: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=477110
