Comment(by gregorio):

 Hi S,

 Thanks a lot for the tip!

 Good to have a workaround, but if it works at the CLI why doesn't work the


 Can you tell me how hard this is to fix? What else would you have to defer
 to look at this?

 Flash is important and this problem makes it look like we support a lot
 less Flash than we really do.
