Less buggy? Ha! I proud myself with making each realease a new
nightmare! Ha!

It's not PulseAudio's fault that Flash is unstable on top of
PulseAudio. It's a race in Flash. Unfixable from the outside. And
unfixable from the inside too, since Flash is evil closed-source
software, which doesn't allow me to fix any bugs.

Consider installing the Flash 10 beta. It fixes all the issues we
pointed out to Adobe, and should work fine on top of PA.

Otherwise install libflashsupport. THis should give you audio, however
sometimes a bit unstable, due to the aforementioned race condition.
