So a gotcha here is mplayer, since you mentioned it. Make sure that
you're running a patched version of mplayer[0]. Can't say much about
Flash, since I haven't experienced the symptom myself with it (and
source not being open, etc.).


[0] at least patched in the latest stable Mandriva and development
Ubuntu versions, e.g., https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/482408
