Bug#655841: Please remove Gnash from default Debian install, as it crashes

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20110106+squeeze3+b1
Severity: important

Default Debian-6 KDE installs "gnash", an extremely unstable
component, that constantly crashes KDE Konqueror, when user accesses
any flash-enabled website (such as www.amd.com).
This makes for very bad newbie user experience, and may drive users away.

I suggest to remove this component from the default Debian KDE
installs until it becomes stable. (starting with the next point
release, 6.0.4)

NOTE: I'm not sure this bug must be opened against "debian-installer",
but I can't seem to find any better alternative.
I am using Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.3 on AMD64 (also tried i386)
