flash sucks , now with pulse audio deadlock
from today hardy updates


fix "frequent crashes with flash on youtube"; we fix this by
demoting libflashsupport from depends: to suggests: (LP: #192888)
This has positive as well as negative consequences:
(+) increased stability for firefox and nspluginwrapper
(-) pulseaudio users reported that this breaks sound if flash
while other applications are running that use the sound
device for output.

This is actually not a bug in our Pulse Plugin, but a major fuckup in Flash. See #267.
