Just reporting back that I found the problem. I needed to re-scan
for plugins. I was sure that I had done this, but apparently I hadn't
done the right combination of installing, rescanning and re-starting on
the right machine before asking here. Many thanks especially to Bart
Martens for taking the trouble to help.
The flashplayer-mozilla 9.0.31 package I mentioned is the one from
Christian Marillat (debian-multimedia), not standard Etch as I wrongly
typed. But all the local machines are now on flashplugin-nonfree from
bpo, and all seems well. Thankyou.
