Hello Daniel, hello John,

I see the same shit thing with my Radeon RV730 AGP (HD4650) 'cause I 
have an old SSE1 system, only. The poor people at Adobe do NOT release 
any update (even a security one) for SSE1 systems since summer 2012!!!

Even so, I have no xorg.conf only /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ files.
Which one should I create/change for testing, this?


PS I only see this with 'hardware acceleration' (ha,ha, 2012..., only 
working right with SSE2, Adobe thinks,...)
PPS The little preview pictures during Flash search are right.
