Ok, I can agree that flash fullscreen "window" is unknown, but does it
*require* this? I've been watching flash without that line for weeks.
Of course, if you *want* flash to float (for whatever god-forsaken reason)
then you'll have a hard time making it float, but why would you want this?

Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't reproduce a "problem" with flash in fullscreen
mode that this line of code would fix.
