Installing Gnash screws up Flash.
That is the core of the problem that needs to be fixed.
There's no reason the two shouldn't be able to coexist peacefully so
that each user on the machine can choose which flash player she wants
My initial difficulties are mitigated a bit. Some web sites work; some
don't. I think that both Gnash and Flash can be installed at the same
time. Which is actually running, I am not competent enough to know.
The order of installation seems to matter. Installing Gnash, and then
(re-)installing Flash caused most embedded videos to play properly. I
have not tried Flash-based UIs, like Flash games.
To put the nail in the coffin of this, after a lot of experimenting,
visiting numerous web sites with Flash, Gnash just isn't going to cut
it, so I:
1. Purged flash-plugin-nonfree
2. (Somehow) removed the gnome metapackage without having half my
installed packages go with it
3. Removed gnash and mozilla-plugin-gnash (but left gnash-common in place)
4. Installed flash-plugin-nonfree
Now everything works. Except Plants vs. Zombies. Bejeweled 2 works,
