That's not how we remove files that are installed by packages in these
parts. We remove (and purge, eventually) the incriminated package
If you have more than one flashplayer installed on your machine (gnash +
flashplugin-nonfree?) then you might have to play with
"update-alternatives" in order for Konqueror to "choose" the latter
rather than the former.

I'm saying that konqueror-plugin-gnash provides libklashpart.so.
