Comment 37 for bug 173890

Adobe updated the flash plugin. Due to their license, we must
download and install their file.
This breaks the Gutsy package.
We have TWO choices:

1) Don't update the package and have a broken package that no-one can
use (aside from the more technically minded)
2) Update the package and have a package that everyone can use, except
for konqueror users.

It seems that because we have no control over Adobe, the ball is in
konqueror's court and they need to patch. (If their users plan on
using flash)

A third solution, if possible, would be to see if Adobe keeps older
versions of flash available for download and update the package to
pull that.
