I believe the plugin's a little buggy, but that's a separate issue.  To 
clarify my original vague gripe ("it doesn't work!"):  Konqueror acts 
just like the plugin hasn't been installed at all -- the page's flash 
functionality is wholly unexpressed, and a new window pops up to 
Macromedia's download page (so I can download the plugin).  But 
Netscape at least remembers that it has the plugin, even if that plugin 
has a bug or twelve.

Then again, if I'm using Konq 2.1 and you're 2.2, and we're both having 
the same problem, maybe it *is* the plugin...

Yep.  kwin + full kde session.

I'm also discussing this on the kde user list -- when I get a solution 
I'll post it to both.  Hm, I wonder which list will win the race ;)
