that may well be, but since it's in fullscreen, nothing on the screen
gets refreshed anymore. Is that what happens with you, too, or doesn't
your player enter fullscreen before freezing?

So it may just be a flash player problem? We are running very different
versions, though. Honestly, the flash plugin should not be able to
freeze the whole screen and never return control :( Maybe I should try
an alternate (open) implementation.

hmm, unsure. I think I can dismiss fullscreen mode with Esc, since I
seem then to be able to defocus the player, but obviously nothing of
that can be seen on the (frozen) screen

yes. Though sometimes, when switching to fullscreen very early when the
vid is still loading, it seems like it never starts to play.

$ aptitude show adobe-flashplugin | grep Version

btw, I use pentadactyl as well; though in different versions on the two
boxes that show the problem, iirc.

@Suraj If you see it, but Kris doesn't, does that mean the problem might
be related to rumai?

Thanks for the support, anyone
