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  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.
