Package: browser-plugin-gnash
Version: 0.8.8-5
Severity: important

Both epiphany and uzbl freeze every time when attempting to access gmail.com. Uninstalling browser-plugin-gnash
solves the problem.

I think this not only indicates a bug in gnash, but a bug in Debian's QA procedure, since the default browser
(epiphany) in a freshly installed Debian 6.0.1 fails consistently with a hugely popular website.
