Then you should modify libflashsupport so that it looks
in /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib for its libraries.

I'm reworking the code a bit so it's possible to modify the library path
without hacking too much code.

That doesn't work with Flash, as it tries to access the device directly.
Even dmix is useless.

So you absolutely need libflashsupport, and make sure it tries to access
Pulse. Debugging is rather easy:

You can force any interface by setting environment variables:

You can also get debug information by setting:

Finally, to get latency information for the PulseAudio driver:
