Bug Description

This concerns 'gtk-gnash' in my list of processes, not 'gnash'. It consumes 2*100% CPU time. This is happening in firefox and chromium-browser since the upgrade to oneiric. In case I look at the clouds running over the country at www.weeronline.nl gnash is also putting a 'blueish sheet' over the 'application' where you can view the weather/clouds. This didn't happen in 11.04.

Also having this happen. "gtk-gnash" ran fine for me prior but now eats up large part of CPU. Seems to have something to do with flash. Some flash works but I get blank screen on flash intensive games in both chrome and firefox. both the "gtk-gnash" issue and flash issue seemed to pop up at the same time.

i did have a recent chrome crash. i think due to too many tabs open. i also recently did a regular update in Ubuntu 11.10. not sure what was updated though. any help would be appreciated.
