This is worked around in upstream glibc 2.14 using symbol versioning, but
that hasn't been released yet.  /usr/share/doc/libc6/NEWS.Debian.gz
explains some debugging tools and short-term workarounds.  See [2] for the
relevant Debian libc6 report.

But of course, it is a flash player bug.  Reading over the existing
bug log, it even seems like there is a patch available.  Bart, would
you like help updating the package?

Paul, what version of the flash plugin do you use?

Thanks for reporting and for packaging the flash plugin, respectively.
